Social Network Analysis
VT 2020, Halvfart, Norrköping
This course presents key concepts, measures, and statistical techniques needed for the analysis of relational, social network data using a computational approach. Network concepts such as centrality and brokerage are discussed, and popular measures related to these concepts are reviewed. The course proceeds to computational methods for handling network data, producing network visualizations, and calculating relevant statistics. Statistical models applicable to network data are considered, and tutorials in relevant software tools are provided. Various statistical models for network data are presented and estimated in interactive computer labs involving real data, and methods for simulating network models are implemented.
