Generalized Blockmodeling by Patrick Doreian
Book DescriptionThis book provides an integrated treatment of blockmodeling, the most frequently used technique in social network analysis. It secures its mathematical foundations and then generalizes blockmodeling for the analysis of many types of network structures. Examples are used throughout the text and include small group structures, little league baseball teams, intra-organizational networks, inter-organizational networks, baboon grooming networks, marriage ties of noble families, trust networks, signed networks, Supreme Court decisions, journal citation networks, and alliance networks. Also provided is an integrated treatment of algebraic and graph theoretic concepts for network analysis and a broad introduction to cluster analysis. These formal ideas are the foundations for the authors' proposal for direct optimizational approaches to blockmodeling which yield blockmodels that best fit the data, a measure of fit that is integral to the establishment of blockmodels, and creates the potential for many generalizations and a deductive use of blockmodeling.

Books By Author Patrick Doreian
Understanding Large Temporal Networks and Spatial Networks, Hardback (October 2014)
A comprehensive, sweeping work by an acclaimed team of authors at the forefront of this hot topic, Understanding Large Temporal Networks and Spatial Networks explores the different approaches to studying large temporal and spatial networks and links them to computationally sound models of changing structure to detect patterns.
Problem of Solidarity, Hardback (October 1998)View all books by Patrick Doreian
In this text the authors examine how solidarity is produced and reproduced, how it is related to social processes, and how such processes can be formalized and create conditions for productively studying their properties.
