MATLAB code for the detection of significant ties in temporal networks

Kobayashi, Teruyoshi

This code allows you to identify significant ties (or backbones) in temporal networks at any level of statistical significance. If you have time-stamped data of interactions between nodes, all you need to do is:

1. Create a sequence of snapshots of networks (binary adjacency matrices) and store them in a cell array.

2. Provide a vector of significance levels.
