Higher-order Network Analysis Takes Off, Fueled by Classical Ideas and New Data

Austin R. Benson, David F. Gleich, Desmond J. Higham

Higher-order network analysis uses the ideas of hypergraphs, simplicial complexes, multilinear and tensor algebra, and more, to study complex systems. These are by now well established mathematical abstractions. What's new is that the ideas can be tested and refined on the type of large-scale data arising in today's digital world. This research area therefore is making an impact across many applications. Here, we provide a brief history, guide, and survey.
