PhD Thesis: Dependence Communities in Source Code

June 8, 2014 - 11:15

Dependence between components in natural systems is a well studied phenomenon in the form of biological and social networks. The concept of community structure arises from the analysis of social networks and has successfully been applied to complex networks in other fields such as biology, physics and computing. We provide empirical evidence that dependence between statements in source code gives rise to community structure.
