Dynamic Graphs Generators Analysis : an Illustrative Case Study


In this work, we investigate the analysis of generators for dynamic graphs, which are defined as graphs whose topology changes over time. We introduce a novel concept, called "sustainability," to qualify the long-term evolution of dynamic graphs. A dynamic graph is considered sustainable if its evolution does not result in a static, empty, or periodic graph. To measure the dynamics of the sets of vertices and edges, we propose a metric, named "Nervousness," which is derived from the Jaccard distance. As an illustration of how the analysis can be conducted, we design a parametrized generator, named D3G3 (Degree-Driven Dynamic Geometric Graphs Generator), which generates dynamic graph instances from an initial geometric graph. The evolution of these instances is driven by two rules that operate on the vertices based on their degree. By varying the parameters of the generator, different properties of the dynamic graphs can be produced. Our results show that in order to ascertain the sustainability of the generated dynamic graphs, it is necessary to study both the evolution of the order and the Nervousness for a given set of parameters.
