Many real-world networks are known to exhibit facts that counter our knowledge prescribed by the theories on network creation and communication patterns. A common prerequisite in network analysis is that information on nodes and links will be complete because network topologies are extremely sensitive to missing information of this kind. Therefore, many real-world networks that fail to meet this criterion under random sampling may be discarded. In this paper we offer a framework for…

The Role of Network Structure and Initial Group Norm Distributions in Norm Conflict
This chapter presents an agent-based model that simulates the adoption of norms in two interacting groups, and shows that norm change is most likely when norms are strongly tied to group membership.
Additional System-Properties Of The Network- And Cognition- Based Financial Products In Nwogugu (2012).
This theoretical article explains the key additional characteristics, system-architecture, fuzzy-attributes and Reasoning/Logic of some cost-red reducing and energy-reducing AI/ML Network/Modular Products (ie. Mortgage-Alternatives Products, Retirement/Savings products and Insurance products) that were introduced in Nwogugu (2012).
Using simulation in the assessment of voting procedures: An epistemic instrumental approach
In this paper, we argue that computer simulations can provide valuable insights into the performance of voting methods on different collective decision problems. This could improve institutional

Imputation of Missing Network Data: Some Simple Procedures
This paper investigates the use of some simple imputation procedures to handle missing network data, and the results of a simulation study show that ignoring the missing data can have large negative effects on structural properties of the network.
Missing and spurious interactions and the reconstruction of complex networks
This work is able to reliably identify both missing and spurious interactions in noisy network observations and enables network reconstructions that yield estimates of the true network properties that are more accurate than those provided by the observations themselves.
Estimation of Flux Between Interacting Nodes on Huge Inter-Firm Networks
It is found that the flux from a buyer to a supplier is given by the product of the fractional powers of both sales with different exponents, indicating that the principle of detailed balance does not hold in the real transport of money; therefore, random walk type transport models such as PageRank are not suitable.
Dissortative from the Outside, Assortative from the Inside: Social Structure and Behavior in the Industrial Trade Network
A trade-network of industrial firms where the nodes are suppliers or buyers, and the links are those invoices that the suppliers send out to their buyers and then go on to present to their bank for discounting reveals a non-trivial and robust relationship between the information exposure and credit rating of a firm.
Biased diffusion on Japanese inter-firm trading network: Estimation of sales from network structure
The sales of individual firms deduced from the money-transport model are shown to be proportional, on an average, to the real sales.
Navigating networks by using homophily and degree
A probabilistic analysis of this navigation problem that produces a surprisingly simple and effective method for directing messages and provides a formal model that may describe how humans make decisions in sociological studies intended to explore the social network as well as how they made decisions in more naturalistic settings.
Statistical Analysis of Longitudinal Network Data With Changing Composition
The authors propose an extension of the simulation algorithm of stochastic actor-oriented models for network change to include networks of changing composition, which is based on the simulation of Markov chains.
