Section 3 presents the information propagation model with overlapping communities.
With respect to the separate effect of IDMAs for high performing funds, the coefficients of Number of Directorships (High) and Overlapping Ratio (High) are statistically insignificant under Specification Columns (2) and (4), indicating that IDMAs for high performing funds will neither increase nor decrease fund favoritism in terms of IPO allocation.
Minimal overlapping permutations are nice in that we have a nice expression for the generating function of [x.sup.[tau]-mch([sigma])] over permutations.

Then executes triangle label diffusion to aggregate the links with the same label to one community, thus, to form an original community structure with dense intracommunity connection; secondly, we combine the obtained communities with maximal extended modularity (EQ) [5] of greedy search to obtain the optimal overlapping community structure; thirdly, overlapping nodes belonging analysis (ONBA) is adopted to adjust the overlapping nodes to avoid "excessive overlapping" which had happened in link community detection; finally, on the basis that overlapping communities are detected precisely, accurate information targeted on every community in mobile networks is recommended to the users.
