9 Introduction
10 The Graph Is a set of items, which we will call vertices With connections between them, called edges How can we represent this mathematical model?
11 The Graph (2) First representation: two relational tables One for nodes attributes, one for edges attributes The input format of most analytical programs Second representation: adjacency lists The computing format for most of the statistical procedures
12 The Graph (3) The Human readable format
13 Networks in real world: Society Nodes: individuals Links: social relationship (family/work/friendship/etc.)
14 Networks in real world: Actors Days of Thunder (1990) Far and Away (1992) Eyes Wide Shut (1999) Nodes: actors Links: cast jointly
15 Networks in real world: Sex Web Nodes: people (Females; Males) Links: sexual relationships
16 Networks in real world: Science Citation Networks Nodes: papers Links: citations Nodes: scientist (authors) Links: write paper together Scientific Coauthorship
17 Networks in real world: Communication The Earth is developing an electronic nervous system, a network with diverse nodes and links are computers routers satellites phone lines TV cables EM waves Communication networks: Many nonidentical components with diverse connections between them.
18 Networks in real world: Biological Made of many nonidentical elements connected by diverse interactions = Complex System
19 Networks in real world: Food Web Nodes: trophic species Links: trophic interactions
20 But... the graph is only the simplest tool for modeling 2 3 There are many variants that allow to capture different kind of relations Different kinds of vertices and edges In a social network may be the nationality for people and the friendship/hate for relations) Edges can carry weights
21 Graph variants: Digraphs Graphs composed of directed edges are themselves called directed graphs or sometimes digraphs Example: the Web
22 Graph variants: Hypergraphs One can also have hyperedges: edges that join more than two vertices together Graphs containing such edges are called hypergraphs Could be used to indicate family ties in a social network For example n individuals connected to each other by virtue of belonging to the same immediate family could be represented by an n edge joining them
23 Graph variants: Bipartite Bipartite graphs: graphs that contain vertices of two distinct types, with edges running only between unlike types Socalled affiliation networks in which people are joined together by common membership of groups take this form, the two types of vertices representing the people and the groups
24 Social Network Analysis: The Beginning (1934) A social network is a set of people or groups of people with some pattern of contacts or interactions between them First example: Moreno's 1934 network of school children friendship
25 Social Network Analysis: Math Theorists Euler s celebrated 1735 solution of the Konigsberg bridge problem is often cited as the first true proof in the theory of network Rapoport (1957) stressed the importance of the degree distribution in networks of all kinds, not just social networks Another famous mathematical theorist: Paul Erdos (1959): the inventor of the random graph
26 Social Network Analysis: Sociological Experiments Smallworld experiments of Milgram, 1967 No actual networks were reconstructed in these experiments, they tell us about network structure The experiments probed the distribution of path lengths in an acquaintance network by asking participants to pass a letter to one of their acquaintances in an attempt to get it to an assigned target individual This experiment was the origin of the popular concept of the six degrees of separation: everyone in the planet can reach everyone else by only contacting six people
27 Traditional Social Network Analysis: Problems Traditional social network studies often suffer from problems of inaccuracy, subjectivity and small sample size Data collection is usually carried out by querying participants directly using questionnaires or interviews These methods are laborintensive and therefore limit the size of the network that can be observed Moreover are influenced by subjective biases on the part of respondents: how one respondent defines a friend, for example, could be quite different from how another does
