Markov Cluster algorithm
An attempt to implement the MCL (Markov Cluster) algorithm in APL.
I'm still a beginner in APL, any advice is welcome.

Re: Markov Cluster algorithm
Looks really cool. How did you generate the graphics? Would you be interested in automatically generating those from within APL?

Re: Markov Cluster algorithm
Code from https://github.com/koteth/MCL_APL/blob/master/MCL.dyalog:
"Improved" version of as follows.
• separate code to create the matrix and to do the Markov iteration
• trivial functions included inline and left unnamed
 Code: Select all
matrix ← ⎕csv 'PATH TO MATRIX/matrix.csv'
InflateCoef ← 2
M ← ⍎¨ matrix
id←{⍵ ⍵⍴1,⍵⍴0}
Nor←{+⌿⍵}
Nmat ← {( ( ⍴ ⍵) ⍴ (Nor ⍵)) }
NormColumn ← {( ⍴ ⍵ ) ⍴ ((×/⍴⍵) ⍴⍵)÷((×/⍴⍵) ⍴ Nmat ⍵ )}
Expand ← {⍵ +.× ⍵}
Inflate ← NormColumn { (⍴⍺) ⍴ ( (×/⍴⍺) ⍴ ⍺) * ⍵ }
M2 ← NormColumn (M + id (≢ M))
Markov ← { ( Expand (NormColumn ⍵) ) Inflate InflateCoef }
FP ← (Markov ⍣ ≡ ⊢ M2)
R ← ((+/FP) >0) ⌿ FP
ClustMap ← ⌽↑⍸R

Re: Markov Cluster algorithm
Since NormColumn is idempotent and is the first function to be applied in Markov, it is not necessary to apply it before launching the iteration. Whence NormColumn is used just once and can be inserted inline. Therefore:
MCL4 ← {⍺←2 ⋄ ⌽↑⍸(0<+/FP)⌿FP← ⍺ {⍺ *⍨ +.×⍨ ⍵÷⍤1+⌿⍵}⍣≡ ⍵+∘.=⍨⍳≢⍵}

Re: Markov Cluster algorithm
Interesting rewriting. Now is more clear to me how to use the ⍨ operator , thanks.

For the image I've used python with networkx. It would be nice to use APL, i've never tried to generate graphics. I'm currently using Dyalog 16 for linux, would you be able to suggest some starting point?

There are illuminating parallels between dyadic f⍨ and the passive case and monadic f⍨ and the reflexive case for verbs in natural languages.

Network graphs are documented in https://sharpplot.com/NetworkMap.htm
If you've never used SharpPlot, see https://sharpplot.com/Languages.htm which should help you translate the C# samples of the rest of the documentation.
