As such, they are increasingly gaining popularity for modelling Collective Adaptive Systems (CAS), e.g. engineered cyber-physical systems or animal collectives. One of the most important notions in network analysis are centrality measures, which inform us about the relative importance of nodes. Computing centrality measures is often challenging for large and dense single-layer networks. This challenge is even more prominent in the multi-layer setup, and thus motivates the design of efficient, centrality-preserving MLN reduction techniques. Network centrality does not naturally translate to its multi-layer counterpart, since the interpretation of the relative importance of nodes and layers may differ across application domains. In this paper, we take a notion of eigenvector-based centrality for a special type of MLNs (multiplex MLNs), with undirected, weighted edges, which was recently proposed in the literature. Then, we define and implement a framework for exact reductions for this class of MLNs and accompanying eigenvector centrality. Our method is inspired by the existing bisimulation-based exact model reductions for single-layered networks: the idea behind the reduction is to identify and aggregate nodes (resp. layers) with the same centrality score. We do so via efficient, static, syntactic transformations. We empirically demonstrate the speed up in the computation over a range of real-world MLNs from different domains including biology and social science.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/51676"/> <dc:contributor>Petrov, Tatjana</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
