In recent methods for community detection in dynamic networks, LFR benchmark is used as dynamic dataset generator, but I thought it is for static community based data generation. For example in paper Overlapping Communities in Dynamic Networks: Their Detection and Mobile Applications, LFR is used. But I don't know how this dataset is generated.

Here is the code of this paper and ground truth included is only for one snapshot.

Question: How is the dataset generated?

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you very much ,but the tool you provided is non-overlapping network, how about the dynamic overlapping network? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @SamanthaChen As it is said, here is for dynamic networks. $\endgroup$

I think the dataset is generated using dynamic network generator made available at this address which is dynamic version of static LFR. It's an excellent dynamic networked data generator.
