Modeling Social Preferences Based on Social Interactions
- An affiliation network
Is a two-mode bipartite network. It contains two different types of nodes, one for actors and one for events, and edges between actors and the events in which actors participate. Examples of affiliation networks include communication networks such as email among people, epidemiological networks that describe people and diseases with which they are infected, and citation networks containing authors and publications. In time-varying affiliation networks, an actor’s participation in a particular event is associated with a specific time, representing when this participation occurred (Sharara et al. 2011)
- An agonistic interaction
Is an interaction where one individual exhibits aggressive and/or submissive behavior toward another
- Microlevel analysis
For understanding social preferences focuses on the development of metrics and models that attempt to capture the dynamics of...
