We propose a general method to combine several estimators of the same quantity in order to produce a better estimate. In the spirit of model and forecast averaging, the final estimator is computed as a weighted average of the initial ones, where the weights are constrained to sum to one. In this framework , the optimal weights, minimizing the quadratic(More)
Signed networks have long been used to represent social relations of amity (+) and enmity (between en individuals. Group of individuals who are cyclically connected are said to be balanced if the number of negative edges in the cycle is even and unbalanced otherwise. In its most natural formulation, the balance of a social network is thus defined from its(More)
