Paper is published in “Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series B”

Dr Patrick Rubin-Delancy has had a paper, ‘A statistical interpretation of spectral embedding: The generalised random dot product graph’,  published in the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: Series B.

The paper provides mathematical guarantees about spectral embedding, a popular tool for exploring and analysing real-world networks. In particular, it makes sense of the case where the network has “heterophilic” community structure: network connections tend to occur between rather than within communities.

The paper is available to view online.

Congratulations to Patrick on this achievement.
