Example Weights Matrix


"BLSM weights" matrix of a 10 nodes random network for testing purposes




A matrix containing positive weights for all pairs of nodes.

Given a couple of nodes, a weight expresses the importance of the distance between the coordinates associated to the two nodes in the latent space in terms of the overall likelihood of the graph. For this reason, even missing links must have a coefficient, otherwise the relative positioning of disconnected nodes would have no effect at all on the graph likelihood.

The exact probability equation is described in BLSM, as well as the notation used.

A few examples:
