List of motifs

The complete list of motifs can be found in this document: Appendix - List of Motifs.
See the paper for descriptions of the metrics of ratio and concentration that are listed for each motif.
This Appendix is part of the following MSc thesis:
B. Witte, Algorithms for detecting and analyzing multiplex motifs in large-scale corporate networks, Master thesis, Leiden University, 2017.
This thesis should appear soon in the Leiden University university thesis repository.


The code for multiplex motif detection is based on an adaptation of two existing algorithms.
The .tar.gz compressed archive file consists of the files that have been changed with respect to the original two software packages, as well as links to these packages: multiplexmotifs2017.tar.gz.
