I have developed with a colleague of mine an economic model of network
formation. Results gave us circular network architecture as optimal
structure. It means that individual are full connected but in row where the
last one individual must be connected with the first one. A quite simple
example could be this:
I've read sociological literature where this structure could be assimilated
to a clique network, but I'm suspicious about other potential implications
in social networks research. Does anyone remember another social network
architecture (with real examples) where this circle form could emerge?
Specific references are welcome...
Thanks in advance,
