Recursive Formula for Labeled Graph Enumeration

  title={Recursive Formula for Labeled Graph Enumeration},
  author={Ravi Goyal and Victor De Gruttola},
This manuscript presents a general recursive formula to estimate the size of fibers associated with algebraic maps from graphs to summary statistics of importance for social network analysis, such as number of edges (graph density), degree sequence, degree distribution, mixing by nodal covariates, and degree mixing. That is, the formula estimates the number of labeled graphs that have given values for network properties. The proposed approach can be extended to additional network properties (e…

Investigation of patient-sharing networks using a Bayesian network model selection approach for congruence class models.
A Bayesian approach to conduct network model selection is presented for a general class of network models referred to as the congruence class models, and evidence in support of heterogeneity in sociality but not selective mixing by provider type or degree is found.


Goodness of fit for log-linear network models: dynamic Markov bases using hypergraphs
Social networks and other sparse data sets pose significant challenges for statistical inference, since many standard statistical methods for testing model/data fit are not applicable in such
Asymptotic enumeration of graphs by degree sequence, and the degree sequence of a random graph
In this paper we relate a fundamental parameter of a random graph, its degree sequence, to a simple model of nearly independent binomial random variables. This confirms a conjecture made in 1997. As
A survey of discrete methods in (algebraic) statistics for networks
An overview of open problems in this area of discrete mathematics from the point of view of a particular family of statistical models for networks called exponential random graph models, which are related to well-known concepts in commutative algebra and graph-theoretic concepts in computer science.
It is shown that this apparently trivial condition is in fact violated by many popular and scientifically appealing models, and that satisfying it drastically limits ERGM's expressive power.
Sampling networks from their posterior predictive distribution
This work provides detail needed to sample networks for the specific network properties of degree distribution, mixing frequency, and clustering, and demonstrates the methods to generate networks using simulated data and data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health.
The Asymptotic Number of Labeled Graphs with Given Degree Sequences
Asymptotics are obtained for the number of n × n symmetric non-negative integer matrices subject to the following constraints: each row sum is specified and bounded, and a specified “sparse” set of entries must be zero.
A Probabilistic Proof of an Asymptotic Formula for the Number of Labelled Regular Graphs
The method determines the asymptotic distribution of the number of short cycles in graphs with a given degree sequence, and gives analogous formulae for hypergraphs.
Networks: An Introduction
This book brings together for the first time the most important breakthroughs in each of these fields and presents them in a coherent fashion, highlighting the strong interconnections between work in different areas.
Effects of random rewiring on the degree correlation of scale-free networks
It is found that random and directional rewiring affect the topology of a scale-free network differently, even if the degree correlation of the rewired networks is the same.

This work proposes a model of an assortatively mixed network and finds that networks percolate more easily if they are assortative and that they are also more robust to vertex removal.
