We consider the problem of finding suitable measures to validate simulated networks as outcome of (agent-based) social simulations. A number of techniques from computer science and social sciences are reviewed in this paper, which tries to compare and ‘fit’ various simulated networks to the available data by using network measures. We look at several social network analysis measures but then turn our focus to techniques that not only consider the position of the nodes but also their… CONTINUE READING
