Input a smoothing paramater (Optional)
Given a time-evoloving network (i.e. dynamic network), the evolution of connected components can be summarized into the so-called formigram . Formigrams can be viewed as endriched Reeb graphs , a popular tool in topological data analysis. The concept of formigrams is so intuitive that one can grasp the essential idea from the figure below.
