Dynamic Social Network Modeling and Analysis: Workshop Summary and Papers

  title={Dynamic Social Network Modeling and Analysis: Workshop Summary and Papers},
  author={Ronald Brelger and Kathleen M. Carley and Philippa Pattison},
In the summer of 2002, the Office of Naval Research asked the Committee on Human Factors to hold a workshop on dynamic social network and analysis. The primary purpose of the workshop was to bring together scientists who represent a diversity of views and approaches to share their insights, commentary, and critiques on the developing body of social network analysis research and application. The secondary purpose was to provide sound models and applications for current problems of national… 

The Role of Dynamic Networks in Social Capital: A Simulation Experiment

This paper has two basic aims: the first is to understand why networks matter in the creation and maintenance of social capital; the second is to explore many of the (unproved) assumptions that arise

What are the relational dimensions of politics? Does the way that people and organizations are connected to each other matter? Are our opinions affected by the people with whom we talk? Are

Perceptions on social networking : a study on their operational relevance for the Navy

Abstract : Since the beginning of civilization, humans formed social networks under communities bound by common interest. Today the ubiquity of the Internet provides ample opportunity for these

Random Graphs and Social Networks: An Economics Perspective

This review of current research on networks explores a number of examples to assess the potential of recent research on random graphs with arbitrary degree distributions in accommodating more general behavioral motivations for social network formation and concludes with an assessment of observable consequences of optimizing behavior in networks for the purpose of estimation.

Opinion formation on dynamic networks: identifying conditions for the emergence of partisan echo chambers

This work presents and validate the conditions for the emergence of partisan echo chambers, characterizing the transition from cohesive communities with a consensus to divisive networks with splitting opinions and applies the model to voting records of the US House of Representatives over a timespan of decades to understand the influence of underlying psychological and social factors on increasing partisanship.

Interaction-driven opinion dynamics in online social networks

It is proved that, for the purposes of analysis and design, the opinion formation process with probabilistic interactions can be accurately approximated by a deterministic system where edge weights are adjusted for the probability of interaction.

Modelling of Social Network using Graph Theoretical Approach

The model of formation and properties of social network via a graph theoretical approach and how two persons are related to each other and how they can access each other’s resources are described.

The Impact of intragroup Social Network Topology on Group Performance: Understanding intra-organizational Knowledge Transfer through a Social Capital Framework

This thesis examines the effects of intragroup social network relations on group performance. Building on prior studies, it views social network topology along structural, relational and cognitive

Multi-Stratum Networks: toward a unified model of on-line identities

This article introduces a model for a complex network of interconnected networks where users’ identities are spread and where information propagates navigating through different communities and social platforms and shows how not only focusing on a single network may provide a very partial understanding of the role of its users, but also that considering all the networks separately may not reveal the information contained in the whole multi-stratum model.

A natural experiment of social network formation and dynamics

The analysis shows that affected individuals are more likely to strengthen interactions, while maintaining the same number of friends as unaffected individuals, and suggest that the formation of social relationships may serve as a coping mechanism to deal with high-stress situations and build resilience in communities.



Statistical Models for Social Networks

The early focus of statistical network modeling on the mathematical and statistical properties of Bernoulli and dyad-independent random graph distributions has now been replaced by efforts to construct theoretically and empirically plausible parametric models for structural network phenomena and their changes over time.

Models and methods in social network analysis

Models and Methods in Social Network Analysis presents the most important developments in quantitative models and methods for analyzing social network data that have appeared during the 1990s.

Power Relations in Exchange Networks

Many theories address the problem of how a social structure affects the experiences and behaviors of its members. This paper offers a network-exchange theory to solve this problem. Previous research

Logit models and logistic regressions for social networks: I. An introduction to Markov graphs andp

A large class of models, including several generalizations of stochastic block models, as well as models parameterizing global tendencies towards clustering and centralization, and individual differences in such tendencies are described and extended.

Social Network Analysis: Methods and Applications

This paper presents mathematical representation of social networks in the social and behavioral sciences through the lens of dyadic and triadic interaction models, which provide insights into the structure and dynamics of relationships between actors and groups.

Social Structure from Multiple Networks. I. Blockmodels of Roles and Positions

Networks of several distinct types of social tie are aggregated by a dual model that partitions a population while simultaneously identifying patterns of relations. Concepts and algorithms are

8. Logit Models for Affiliation Networks

This work forms models that allow us to study the (log) odds of an actor's belonging to an event (or an event including an actor) as a function of properties of the two-mode network of actors' memberships in events.

The Duality of Persons and Groups

A metaphor of classical social theory concerning the "intersection" of persons within groups and of groups within the individual is translated into a set of techniques to aid in empirical analysis of

Latent Space Approaches to Social Network Analysis

This work develops a class of models where the probability of a relation between actors depends on the positions of individuals in an unobserved “social space,” and proposes Markov chain Monte Carlo procedures for making inference on latent positions and the effects of observed covariates.

The Strength of Weak Ties

Analysis of social networks is suggested as a tool for linking micro and macro levels of sociological theory. The procedure is illustrated by elaboration of the macro implications of one aspect of
