Models and Methods in Social Network Analysis, first published in 2005, presents the most important developments in quantitative models and methods for analyzing social network data that have appeared during the 1990s. Intended as a complement to Wasserman and Faust's Social Network Analysis: Methods and Applications, it is a collection of articles by leading methodologists reviewing advances in their particular areas of network methods. Reviewed are advances in network measurement, network sampling, the analysis of centrality, positional analysis or blockmodelling, the analysis of diffusion through networks, the analysis of affiliation or 'two-mode' networks, the theory of random graphs, dependence graphs, exponential families of random graphs, the analysis of longitudinal network data, graphical techniques for exploring network data, and software for the analysis of social networks.

In this book, leading methodologists address the issue of how effectively to apply the latest developments in social network analysis to behavioural and social science disciplines. Topics examined include: ways to specify the network contents to be studied; how to select the method for representing network structures; how social network analysis has been used to study interorganizational relations via the resource dependence model; how to use a contact matrix for studying the spread of disease in epidemiology; and how cohesion and structural equivalence network theories relate to studying social influence. The book also offers some statistical models for social support networks.

Dieses Buch stellt einige wichtige und zukunftsträchtige neuere Methoden in den Sozialwissenschaften vor. Ziel des Buches ist, einerseits deren Grundlogik zu klären und andererseits zu zeigen, inwiefern sie den klassischen Methodenkatalog sinnvoll ergänzen können. Dazu wird das Spektrum an mit diesen Techniken bearbeitbaren Fragestellungen aufgezeigt, Beispielarbeiten diskutiert, nötige Voraussetzungen z.B. in Bezug auf die Datenqualität angesprochen, und damit insgesamt das Potential dieser Verfahren veranschaulicht. Zudem gibt jeder Beitrag praktische Tipps für die Umsetzung eigener Forschungsarbeiten und anhand kommentierter Literaturempfehlungen Ansatzpunkte für die intensivere Beschäftigung mit den Methoden. Daneben wird (sofern angebracht) kurz diskutiert welche Softwarepakete sich für die Anwendung eignen.

This volume provides new insights into the functioning of organizational, managerial and market societies. Multilevel analysis and social network analysis are described and the authors show how they can be combined in developing the theory, methods and empirical applications of the social sciences. This book maps out the development of multilevel reasoning and shows how it can explain behavior, through two different ways of contextualizing it. First, by identifying levels of influence on behavior and different aggregations of actors and behavior, and complex interactions between context and behavior. Second, by identifying different levels as truly different systems of agency: such levels of agency can be examined separately and jointly since the link between them is affiliation of members of one level to collective actors at the superior level. It is by combining these approaches that this work offers new insights. New case studies and datasets that explore new avenues of theorizing and new applications of methodology are presented. This book will be useful as a reference work for all social scientists, economists and historians who use network analyses and multilevel statistical analyses. Philosophers interested in the philosophy of science or epistemology will also find this book valuable. ​

Neuere Entwicklungen der Entscheidungstheorie, die in der deutschsprachigen Literatur bislang noch kaum Beachtung fanden, sind Gegenstand dieses Buchs. Es geht um Alternativen zur subjektiven Erwartungsnutzentheorie, die der Erfassung intransitiver Präferenzen und der Berücksichtigung von Ergebnisplausibilitäten, Ambiguität, potentieller Enttäuschung und potentiellem Bedauern dienen. Im Mittelpunkt steht ein axiomatischer Ansatz, der die Entwicklung leicht verständlicher Axiomensysteme und die Lösung einiger bislang noch ungelöster Axiomatisierungsprobleme erlaubt. Die ausführlich dargestellten Beweise sind in Anhänge zu den einzelnen Kapiteln ausgelagert.

Social sequence analysis includes a diverse and rapidly growing body of methods that social scientists have developed to help study complex ordered social processes, including chains of transitions, trajectories and other ordered phenomena. Social sequence analysis is not limited by content or time scale and can be used in many different fields, including sociology, communication, information science and psychology. Social Sequence Analysis aims to bring together both foundational and recent theoretical and methodological work on social sequences from the last thirty years. A unique reference book for a new generation of social scientists, this book will aid demographers who study life-course trajectories and family histories, sociologists who study career paths or work/family schedules, communication scholars and micro-sociologists who study conversation, interaction structures and small-group dynamics, as well as social epidemiologists.

Filling a gap in literature, this self-contained book presents theoretical and application-oriented results that allow for a structural exploration of complex networks. The work focuses not only on classical graph-theoretic methods, but also demonstrates the usefulness of structural graph theory as a tool for solving interdisciplinary problems. Applications to biology, chemistry, linguistics, and data analysis are emphasized. The book is suitable for a broad, interdisciplinary readership of researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in discrete mathematics, statistics, computer science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, computational and systems biology, cognitive science, computational linguistics, and mathematical chemistry. It may also be used as a supplementary textbook in graduate-level seminars on structural graph analysis, complex networks, or network-based machine learning methods.
