Glossary

Dynamic networks

Networks that vary through time. An example is the network of who talks to whom within a company by day. Dynamic networks are also referred to as temporal networks, time variant networks, and dynamical networks

Meta-networks

A network of networks, in which there are generally multiple classes of nodes and multiple classes of link. Meta-networks are also referred to as high-dimensional networks and geo-temporally embedded meta-networks

Social media

Data generated by an online social networking tools such as Twitter, Facebook, or Foursquare. Social media networks are networks derived from social media data such as the Twitter retweet network. Social media are also referred to as online source, open-source, and e-media

Social network analysis

Graphical, statistical, and visualization metrics, algorithms, and techniques for analyzing structural data that can be...
