Liu, Jian-Guo ; Zhou, Tao ; Zhang, Yi-Cheng ; Guo, Qiang

In: International Journal of Modern Physics C, 2010, vol. 21, no. 1, p. 137-147

In this paper, the statistical property, namely degree correlation between users and objects, is taken into account and be embedded into the similarity index of collaborative filtering (CF) algorithm to improve the algorithmic performance. The numerical simulation on a benchmark data set shows that the algorithmic accuracy of the presented algorithm, measured by the average ranking score, is...

Personal recommendation via modified collaborative filtering

Liu, Run-Ran ; Jia, Chun-Xiao ; Zhou, Tao ; Sun, Duo ; Wang, Bing-Hong

In: Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications, 2009, vol. 388, no. 4, p. 462-468

In this paper, we propose a novel method to compute the similarity between congeneric nodes in bipartite networks. Different from the standard cosine similarity, we take into account the influence of a node’s degree. Substituting this new definition of similarity for the standard cosine similarity, we propose a modified collaborative filtering (MCF). Based on a benchmark database, we...
