Identifying Fragments in Networks for Structural Balance and Tracking the Levels of Balance Over Time

Patrick Doreian/ Andrej Mrvar

This paper presents three items. The first is a brief outline of structural balance oriented towards tracking the amount of balance (or imbalance) over time in signed networks. Often, the distribution of specific substructures within broader networks has great interest value. The second item is a brief outline of a procedure in Pajek for identifying fragments in networks. Identifying fragments (or patterns or motifs) in networks has general utility for social network analysis. The third item is (..)

We treat oli(..)

Social Exchange Networks: A Review of Experimental Studies

Sabine Neuhofer/ Ilona Reindl/ Bernhard Kittel

This article surveys laboratory experiments on social exchange networks. The method of laboratory experiments is prominent in this field. The various theoretical perspectives informing the experiments are grouped into three approaches: the first, dominated by network-exchange theory, is mainly concerned with power and structure, the second discusses social-psychological approaches and emphasizes behavioral and psychological dimensions such as reciprocity, emotions and cohesion, and the third is (..)
