Graphical Support for Network Evolution Models


This project is part of the European Collaborative Research Project (ECRP) Dynamics of actors and networks across levels: individuals, groups, organizations, and social settings (coordinated by T.A.B. Snijders, Oxford/Groningen) with participating groups from The Netherlands, France, United Kingdom, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

The aim  is to develop and employ network visualization methods for the interpretation and model diagnosis of statistical models for social network evolution. The SIENA models, which form the basis of the entire ECRP proposal, are rather algebraic and require complementary graphical methods to be utilized more easily. These methods are developed in a feedback-loop with both the core modeling project and our substantively and empirically oriented partner projects.
