# cluster_infomap

##### Infomap community finding

Find community structure that minimizes the expected description length of a random walker trajectory

- Keywords
- graphs

##### Usage

```
cluster_infomap(graph, e.weights = NULL, v.weights = NULL,
nb.trials = 10, modularity = TRUE)
```

##### Arguments

- graph
The input graph.

- e.weights
If not

`NULL`

, then a numeric vector of edge weights. The length must match the number of edges in the graph. By default the ‘`weight`

’ edge attribute is used as weights. If it is not present, then all edges are considered to have the same weight. Larger edge weights correspond to stronger connections.- v.weights
If not

`NULL`

, then a numeric vector of vertex weights. The length must match the number of vertices in the graph. By default the ‘`weight`

’ vertex attribute is used as weights. If it is not present, then all vertices are considered to have the same weight. A larger vertex weight means a larger probability that the random surfer jumps to that vertex.- nb.trials
The number of attempts to partition the network (can be any integer value equal or larger than 1).

- modularity
Logical scalar, whether to calculate the modularity score of the detected community structure.
