Network? Weighted network?

social-network_weightedNetworks are the cornerstone of this blog, therefore I have decided to make the first post my definition of a network and a few basic network measures.

The content of this post has been integrated in the tnet manual.

    I am making the design of a graduate social network, creating groups according their career; then groups by the school, by the campus and finally by the whole university. I think that woul help governance and some sort of competititon among them.
    I have found difficult to categorize this kind of network, can you help me about this?

      I am not entire sure what you mean by categorization of networks. Are you trying to see if it is a small world, or are you trying to find communities within the network?

    Dear Tore,
    I am trying to give an answer to a disperse UABC alumni community using SN. At the beginnig, I was thinking in one group with free play, everybody mixed up, but now I want to “force” its structure wich would change the performance. Leaders from every group will be chosen and the institution will recognize them. Fresh alumni will be asked to join the net, all interaction with alumni would imply an invitation and data refreshment.
    We will have several networks nested…
    This project is part of my doctoral studies in engineering education. Do you have references of previous work according with my ideas?
    Thank you for your answer, I appreciate very much your kinf attention.
