  • The analysis of datasets taking the form of simple, undirected graphs continues to gain in importance across a variety of disciplines. Two choices of null model, the logistic-linear model and the implicit log-linear model, have come into common use for analyzing such network data, in part because each accounts for the heterogeneity of network node degrees typically observed in practice. Here we show how these both may be viewed as instances of a broader class of null models, with the property… CONTINUE READING
