Hi Charley,

Could you please clarify your desired output? Are you using GraphLab Create's <a href="">triangle counting method</a>?

Thanks, Chris

yes I am Graphlab Create's triangle counting method. I want to access the triangle graph with vertices and edge weight, such that I can rank these triangles with some metrics involving edge weights.

We do not expose an enumeration of the triangles that were detected. We only return the number of triangles that involve each vertex, which you can obtain with m['triangle_count'].

How do you want to use edge weights to rank the triangles? There may be a way to create a custom triple_apply method to solve your original problem.

thanks. for example, I want to get the average edge weights of each triangle, is there a way to implement using triple_apply? could give me some example code?

May I ask why you want to average the edge weights for each triangle? I may be able to suggest a slightly different approach.

It would be a bit tricky to do trianglecount using tripleapply.

How big is your graph?

average weights is just one thought, I haven't decided the best way, so it would be good to hear your suggestion. the graph is not big, about one hundred nodes, 2-3 thousand edges.

If possible, can you tell me what are you trying to understand about the graph? Knowing a bit about your goals would help me come up with potential solutions.

Thanks! Chris

I want to "rank" 3-way collaborations in the graph, and need to consider edge weights.
