What sort of affinity algorithm?

I should be grateful if you would guide me to the right resources (documentation and/or person) in order that I can solve a problem. I am very much a neo4j novice and have only represented my CV in neo4j and that was over a year ago.

I want to group one type of node according to how similarly they relate to another type of node. In my mind this is affinity analysis but others might call it cluster analysis.

To be more specific, I have a CRUD matrix where one axis is a set list of business processes and the other is a list of entity types (in the relational modelling/database sense) and the relationship between them is whether the Business Process has a Write, Read or Read/Write access to the Entity Type. I want to represent this in neo4j.

I think I have two questions:

  1. Is the type of algorithm that I need listed in the link below?
  2. If so, where can I go to get more detail to solve my problem?

The solving this problem will do two things:

  • Give a useful insight into my client’s business architecture
  • Reveal the power of graphs to my client.

The link I mentioned is this....
