Subject Re: Trying to implement program to find betweenness centrality in giraph
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2013 20:07:08 GMT
Hello Pradeep,

the standard betweeness and closeness measures do not scale to large
graphs per se, as they require computation of all shortest paths, where
even the result is quadratic in the number of vertices and therefore

U Kang has done some interesting work on finding scalable substitutes
for these measures:

"Centralities in large graphs"

These algorithms should be relatively simple to implement in Giraph, we
had some students prototype them in a university course last year.
