    Peter Mucha " Community Detection in Multislice Networks"

    Abstract: Network science is an interdisciplinary endeavor with methods and applications drawn from across the natural, social, and information sciences. A prominent problem in network science is the algorithmic detection of tightly connected groups of nodes known as communities. While community detection has been used successfully in a number of applications, its use has been largely limited to the study of single, static networks. Through the study of dynamical processes on networks, we developed a generalized framework of quality functions for partitions that allows for the study of community structure in multislice networks, which are combinations of networks coupled by identification of each node in one network slice to itself in other slices. This framework allows studies of community structure in a general setting encompassing networks that change over time, have multiple types of links, and have multiple community scales. No prior knowledge about community detection in networks will be assumed for this presentation.
    Bio: After a childhood spent mostly in Minnesota, Peter moved east to attend college at Cornell University where he majored in Engineering Physics. He then took a Churchill Scholarship to study in the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge with an M.Phil. in Physics. Returning to the States, he continued his studies at Princeton, leading to an M.A. and Ph.D. in Applied and Computational Mathematics. Following a postdoctoral instructorship in applied mathematics at MIT, and a tenure-track assistant professorship in Mathematics at Georgia Tech, Peter moved to Chapel Hill to join the Department of Mathematics and the Institute for Advanced Materials, Nanoscience and Technology at UNC.
