Visualization of networks in MATLAB

  • Three-dimensional network visualization: This function allows to plot a three-dimensional network in MATLAB, using provided input coordinates

    adjacency_plot_und.m (BU network).

Visualization of matrices in MATLAB

  • Grid communities: This function reorders the network according to community structure and visualizes ('grids') communities directly on the matrix.

    grid_communities.m
     (BU, WU, BD, WD networks).
    Contributor: RB.

  • Network backbone: The network backbone contains the dominant connections in the network and may be used to aid network visualization. This function computes the network backbone using a minimum-spanning-tree based algorithm.

  • backbone_wu.m (BU, WU networks).
    Contributor: OS.

  • Matrix alignment with simulated annealing: This function uses a version of simulated annealing to align two matrices, by reordering nodes in one of the matrices.

    align_matrices.m (BU, BD, WU, WD networks).
    Contributors: YA, OS.

  • Node reordering with simulated annealing: This function uses a version of simulated annealing to reorder nodes in order to maximize the number of edges close to the main diagonal.

    reorder_matrix.m (BU, BD, WU, WD networks).
    Contributors: YA, OS.

  • Node reordering by modular structure: This function uses the network community structure to reorder nodes in order to maximize the number of edges close to the main diagonal.

    reorder_mod.m (BU, BD, WU, WD networks).
    Contributor: MR.

  • Node reordering: This function reorders nodes in order to maximize the number of edges close to the main diagonal. 

    reorderMAT.m (BU, BD, WU, WD networks).
    Contributor: OS.
