My question is related to the following posts, but doesn't quite answer my question:

Effect of weights on the Louvain communities detected


If weights are not considered (or provided in original graph creation), is community detection using the Louvain algorithm simply detecting communities based on the connections that form between nodes (in other words, k-number of communities) without considering the distance between them (edge weights, as there are no weights to determine how strong connections are)?

Thank you.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you... Sort of... My question was more, can communities be detected when the values of edges are only 1's and 0's? $\endgroup$ – user9317212 Feb 27 at 9:52
