Class SaltonIndexLinkPrediction<V,​E>

  • Type Parameters:
    V - the graph vertex type
    E - the graph edge type
    All Implemented Interfaces:
    LinkPredictionAlgorithm<V,​E>

    public class SaltonIndexLinkPrediction<V,​E>
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements LinkPredictionAlgorithm<V,​E>
    Predict links using the Salton Index, also called the cosine similarity.

    This is a local method which computes $s_{xy} = \frac{|\Gamma(u)\cap\Gamma(v))|}{\sqrt{k(u) \times k(v)}}$ where for a node $v$, $\Gamma(v)$ denotes the set of neighbors of $v$ and $k(v) = |\Gamma(v)|$ denotes the degree of $v$.

                              V v)
        Description copied from interface: LinkPredictionAlgorithm
        Predict an edge between two vertices. The magnitude and the interpretation of the returned score depend solely on the algorithm.
        Specified by:
        predict in interface LinkPredictionAlgorithm<V,​E>
        Parameters:
        u - first vertex
        v - second vertex
        Returns:
        a prediction score
