Network Analysis Literacy: A Practical Approach to the by Katharina A. Zweig

By Katharina A. Zweig

This book presents a point of view of community research as a tool to find and quantify major buildings within the interplay styles among differing types of  entities. furthermore, community research presents the fundamental capability to narrate those buildings to homes of the entities. It has confirmed itself to be helpful for the research of organic and social networks, but in addition for networks describing complicated platforms in economic system, psychology, geography, and numerous different fields. this day, community research programs within the open-source platform R and different open-source software program tasks allow scientists from all fields to fast observe community analytic how to their facts units. Altogether, those functions provide one of these wealth of community analytic tools that it may be overwhelming for somebody simply coming into this box. This booklet offers a street map via this jungle of community analytic tools, bargains suggestion on tips on how to decide the easiest approach for a given community analytic undertaking, and the way to prevent universal pitfalls. It introduces the equipment that are quite often used to research advanced networks, e.g., varied international community measures, varieties of random graph types, centrality indices, and networks motifs. as well as introducing those equipment, the central focus is on community research literacy – the competence to determine whilst to take advantage of which of those tools for which kind of query. moreover, the ebook intends to extend the reader's competence to learn unique literature on community research by means of delivering a word list and extensive translation of formal notation and mathematical symbols in daily speech. various elements of community research literacy – figuring out formal definitions, programming initiatives, or the research of structural measures and their interpretation – are deepened in a number of workouts with supplied options. this article is a superb, if no longer the easiest start line for all scientists who are looking to harness the facility of community research for his or her box of expertise.
