Abstract

There is growing interest in studying dynamic graphs, or graphs that evolve with time. In this work, we investigate a new type of dynamic graph analysis - finding regions of a graph that are evolving in a similar manner and are topologically similar over a period of time. For example, these regions can be used to group a set of changes having a common cause in event detection and fault diagnosis. Prior work [6] has proposed a greedy framework called cSTAG to find these regions. It was accurate in datasets where the regions are temporally and spatially well separated. However, in cases where the regions are not well separated, cSTAG produces incorrect groupings. In this paper, we propose a ne..
