A logical approach for temporal and multiplex networks analysis

Esteban Bautista

Many systems generate data as a set of triplets (a, b, c): they may represent that user a called b at time c or that customer a purchased product b in store c. These datasets are traditionally studied as networks with an extra dimension (time or layer), for which the fields of temporal and multiplex networks have extended graph theory to account for the new dimension. However, such frameworks detach one variable from the others and allow to extend one same concept in many ways, making it hard to capture patterns across all dimensions and to identify the best definitions for a given dataset. This extended abstract overrides this vision and proposes a direct processing of the set of triplets. In particular, our work shows that a more general analysis is possible by partitioning the data and building categorical propositions that encode informative patterns. We show that several concepts from graph theory can be framed under this formalism and leverage such insights to extend the concepts to data triplets. Lastly, we propose an algorithm to list propositions satisfying specific constraints and apply it to a real world dataset.
