Algorithm 2

GROUPING algorithm.
Input: a weighted graph .
Output: each vertex is assigned to a group.
Calculate the centrality score of each vertex ,
Order via their centrality scores, such
that with .
 Create a new group , where is the first vertex in the vertex queue .
  Find the candidate neighbor set   of .
  Calculate the contribution to of each vertex in .
  Sort in descending order by their contribution to , that is,
   , where and
  if , break.
