Large real-world graph (a.k.a network, relational) data are omnipresent, in online media, businesses, science, and the government. Analysis of these massive graphs is crucial, in order to extract descriptive and predictive knowledge with many commercial, medical, and environmental applications. In addition to its general structure, knowing what stands out, i.e. anomalous or novel, in the data is often at least, or even more important and interesting.
In this thesis, we build novel algorithms and tools for mining and modeling large-scale graphs, with a focus on:
