Information mining from networks by identifying communities is an important problem across a number of research fields including social science, biology, physics, and medicine. Most existing community detection algorithms are graph theoretic and lack the ability to detect accurate community boundaries if the ratio of intra-community to inter-community links is low. Also, algorithms based on modularity maximization may fail to resolve communities smaller than a specific size if the community size varies significantly. We propose a fundamentally different community detection algorithm based on the fact that each network community spans a different subspace in the geodesic space. Therefore, each node can only be efficiently represented as a linear combination of nodes spanning the same subspace (Fig. 1). To make the process of community detection more robust, we use sparse linear coding with l1 norm constraint. In order to find a community label for each node, sparse spectral clustering algorithm is used. The proposed community detection technique is compared with more than ten state of the art methods on two benchmark networks (with known clusters) using normalized mutual information criterion. Our proposed algorithm outperformed existing methods with a significant margin on both benchmark networks.
