Summary: The influence maximization (IM) problem is an important issue in social network, which is to seek k nodes with maximal influence cascade such that the influence spread invoked by the k nodes in the network is maximized. The traditional approaches for resolving influence maximization, including Greedy, Distance, DegreeDiscount and PageRank, usually suffer from several drawbacks, such as high computational cost and unstable accuracy. In this paper, we propose a new optimization model, i.e., complete-three-layer-influence evaluation (CTLI), based on an improved three-degree model by considering the intra-layer and inter-layer’s communication effect. A discrete bacterial foraging optimization algorithm is proposed to optimize CTLI model. In this algorithm, the update and mutation rules for the bacteria are redefined to improve the search ability. Finally, the proposed model and algorithm are tested on four real-world social network instances. Results demonstrate that the proposed method outperforms its compared algorithms in terms of solution accuracy and computation efficiency.
