Hector Yee commented on MAHOUT710:

I'd love to beta test it soon. How will Enumerate Triangle perform on a graph of tens of millions
of nodes?

> We are Tillmann Fiehn and Sebastian Arnold, IT students from TU Berlin. As Sebastian
Schelter already announced, we are atteding Isabel's and Sebastian's class "Large scale data
analysis and data mining" and picked an interesting project that we want to implement in Mahout.
We are open for any hints and suggestions and would appreciate if you could share your thoughts
on our proposal.
> Our goal is to implement a map/reduce algorithm for finding ktrusses in a given graph.
A ktruss is a nontrivial, singlecomponent maximal subgraph, such that every edge is contained
in at least k2 triangles in the subgraph. The algorithm was proposed in the IEEE paper J.
Cohen 2009: "Graph Twiddling in a MapReduce World" (http://www.csee.usf.edu/~anda/CIS6930S11/papers/graphprocessingwmapreduce.pdf)
and involves a number of graph algorithms that are to our knowledge currently not present
in Mahout:
> *Goal: finding KTrusses*
> * relaxation of kmember clique
> * nontrivial, singlecomponent maximal subgraph, s.t.
> * every edge is contained in at least k2 triangles in the subgraph
> *Algorithms to be implemented on top of Mahout / Hadoop:*
> *simplifyGraph*: Edges > RepresentativeEdges
> * removes Loops (not cycles)
> * aggregate duplicate edges
> *augmentGraphWithDegrees*: RepresentativeEdges > AugmentedEdges = (Edge (v, u) ,
d(v), d(u))
> * augements the edges with degree information for both nodes d(v) = {E  E = (x,y) a.
(x = v o. y = v) }
> *enumerateTriangles*: AugmentedEdges = (Edge, d(v), d(u)) > Triangles (v, u, s)
> * finds all triangles in a Graph
> *findComponents*: RepresentativeEdges > ZoneAssignments (v, z)
> * finds all components of a graph, each identified as the order number of the lowestorder
vertex contained
> * consists of:
> ** step 1: find adjacent zones: Edges x Zones > InterzoneEdges (z, z)
> ** step 2: merge adjacent zones into one (the lowestorder neighbouring zone): InterzoneEdges,
ZoneAssignments (v, z) > Pairs (v, z)
> {noformat}
> while true do:
> step 1
> if empty set interzone edges break;
> step 2
> done
> {noformat}
> *findKTrusses*: Edges, k > ZoneAssignments (v, z)
> * finds all ktrusses of the graph
> * each returned vertex v is part of a truss z
> {noformat}
> simplifyGraph
> while true do:
> augmentGraphWithDegrees
> enumerateTriangles
> keep only edges contained in k2 triangles
> if all edges kept break;
> done
> findComponents
> {noformat}
> We suppose to create the package {{org.apache.mahout.graph.trusses}} and {{org.apache.mahout.graph.components}}
in the {{core}} module.
