Figure 3

In (A) we present the number of modules determined by DMSP on various values of connectivity density. In blue dotted line we depict the number of functional modules, by keeping looser criteria for the determination of the modules. When we apply stricter criteria (as in red dotted line) there is a slight decrease in the number of the modules but at the same time the connectivity density values are better. In (B) figure we display the initial size of the kernel, as well as the final size of the module, for modules with various sizes, and densities above 0.5. As we can see, DMSP manages to expand the initial size of the kernel in various degrees in order to determine the most coherent module each time.
