The clustering of the vertex set of a graph.

This class extends `Clustering`

by linking it to a specific `Graph`

object and by optionally storing the modularity score of the clustering. It also provides some handy methods like getting the subgraph corresponding to a cluster and such.

Note | since this class is linked to a `Graph` , destroying the graph by the `del` operator does not free the memory occupied by the graph if there exists a `VertexClustering` that references the `Graph` . |

def __init__(self, graph, membership=None, modularity=None, params=None, modularity_params=None):

overrides

`igraph.clustering.Clustering.__init__`

overridden in

`igraph.cut.Cut`

Creates a clustering object for a given graph.

Parameters | graph | the graph that will be associated to the clustering |

membership | the membership list. The length of the list must be equal to the number of vertices in the graph. If `None` , every vertex is assumed to belong to the same cluster. | |

modularity | the modularity score of the clustering. If `None` , it will be calculated when needed. | |

params | additional parameters to be stored in this object. | |

modularity_params | arguments that should be passed to `Graph.modularity` when the modularity is (re)calculated. If the original graph was weighted, you should pass a dictionary containing a `weight` key with the appropriate value here. |

@classmethod

def FromAttribute(cls, graph, attribute, intervals=None, params=None):

def FromAttribute(cls, graph, attribute, intervals=None, params=None):

Creates a vertex clustering based on the value of a vertex attribute.

Vertices having the same attribute will correspond to the same cluster.

Parameters | graph | the graph on which we are working |

attribute | name of the attribute on which the clustering is based. | |

intervals | for numeric attributes, you can either pass a single number or a list of numbers here. A single number means that the vertices will be put in bins of that width and vertices ending up in the same bin will be in the same cluster. A list of numbers specify the bin positions explicitly; e.g., `[10, 20, 30]` means that there will be four categories: vertices with the attribute value less than 10, between 10 and 20, between 20 and 30 and over 30. Intervals are closed from the left and open from the right. | |

params | additional parameters to be stored in this object. | |

Returns | a new VertexClustering object |

def as_cover(self):

overrides

`igraph.clustering.Clustering.as_cover`

Returns a `VertexCover`

that contains the same clusters as this clustering.

def cluster_graph(self, combine_vertices=None, combine_edges=None):

Returns a graph where each cluster is contracted into a single vertex.

In the resulting graph, vertex *i* represents cluster *i* in this clustering. Vertex *i* and *j* will be connected if there was at least one connected vertex pair *(a, b)* in the original graph such that vertex *a* was in cluster *i* and vertex *b* was in cluster *j*.

Parameters | combine_vertices | specifies how to derive the attributes of the vertices in the new graph from the attributes of the old ones. See `Graph.contract_vertices()` for more details. |

combine_edges | specifies how to derive the attributes of the edges in the new graph from the attributes of the old ones. See `Graph.simplify()` for more details. If you specify `False` here, edges will not be combined, and the number of edges between the vertices representing the original clusters will be equal to the number of edges between the members of those clusters in the original graph. | |

Returns | the new graph. |

def crossing(self):

Returns a boolean vector where element *i* is `True`

iff edge *i* lies between clusters, `False`

otherwise.

def recalculate_modularity(self):

Recalculates the stored modularity value.

This method must be called before querying the modularity score of the clustering through the class member `modularity`

or `q`

if the graph has been modified (edges have been added or removed) since the creation of the `VertexClustering`

object.

Returns | the new modularity score |

def _recalculate_modularity_safe(self):

Recalculates the stored modularity value and swallows all exceptions raised by the modularity function (if any).

Returns | the new modularity score or `None` if the modularity function could not be calculated. |

def subgraph(self, idx):

Get the subgraph belonging to a given cluster.

Precondition: the vertex set of the graph hasn't been modified since the moment the cover was constructed.

Parameters | idx | the cluster index |

Returns | a copy of the subgraph |

def subgraphs(self):

Gets all the subgraphs belonging to each of the clusters.

Precondition: the vertex set of the graph hasn't been modified since the moment the cover was constructed.

Returns | a list containing copies of the subgraphs |

def giant(self):

Returns the largest cluster of the clustered graph.

The largest cluster is a cluster for which no larger cluster exists in the clustering. It may also be known as the *giant community* if the clustering represents the result of a community detection function.

Precondition: the vertex set of the graph hasn't been modified since the moment the cover was constructed.

Returns | a copy of the largest cluster. | |

Note | there can be multiple largest clusters, this method will return the copy of an arbitrary one if there are multiple largest clusters. |

def __plot__(self, context, bbox, palette, *args, **kwds):

Plots the clustering to the given Cairo context in the given bounding box.

This is done by calling `Graph.__plot__()`

with the same arguments, but coloring the graph vertices according to the current clustering (unless overridden by the `vertex_color`

argument explicitly).

This method understands all the positional and keyword arguments that are understood by `Graph.__plot__()`

, only the differences will be highlighted here:

`mark_groups`

: whether to highlight some of the vertex groups by colored polygons. Besides the values accepted by`Graph.__plot__`

(i.e., a dict mapping colors to vertex indices, a list containing lists of vertex indices, or`False`

), the following are also accepted:`True`

: all the groups will be highlighted, the colors matching the corresponding color indices from the current palette (see the`palette`

keyword argument of`Graph.__plot__`

.- A dict mapping cluster indices or tuples of vertex indices to color names. The given clusters or vertex groups will be highlighted by the given colors.
- A list of cluster indices. This is equivalent to passing a dict mapping numeric color indices from the current palette to cluster indices; therefore, the cluster referred to by element
*i*of the list will be highlighted by color*i*from the palette.

The value of the

`plotting.mark_groups`

configuration key is also taken into account here; if that configuration key is`True`

and`mark_groups`

is not given explicitly, it will automatically be set to`True`

.In place of lists of vertex indices, you may also use

`VertexSeq`

instances.In place of color names, you may also use color indices into the current palette.

`None`

as a color name will mean that the corresponding group is ignored.`palette`

: the palette used to resolve numeric color indices to RGBA values. By default, this is an instance of`ClusterColoringPalette`

.
