Generalized blockmodeling of sparse networks

  title={Generalized blockmodeling of sparse networks},
  author={Ales Ziberna},
The paper starts with an observation that the blockmodeling of relatively sparse binary networks (where we also expect sparse non-null blocks) is problematic. The use of regular equivalence often results in almost all units being classified in the same equivalence class, while using structural equivalence (binary version) only finds very small complete blocks. Two possible ways of blockmodeling such networks within a binary generalized blockmodeling approach are presented. It is also shown that… CONTINUE READING
