This program implements the variationnal EM algorithm for directed and undirected networks.

Running mixnet

mixnet -q <int> -Q <int> <filename.spm> [options]

Main options are:

  • - -undirected : Specifies that the network is undirected
  • - -improve : Performs improvements of unsatisfying models

For a complete options list:

mixnet -h man mixnet

Post-treating the results

MixNet provides two Perl programs:

  • mixnet-cl c From a MixNet .model file, displays the class of each nodel and creates file for Cytoscape
  • mixnet-sim From a MixNet .model file, simulate a network
