Subject: Community Structure
Dear Dr. Morris,
I am a graduate student from UT Austin and am currently working at LANL with
Stephen Eubank. I was hoping to get some help from you.
I am studying community structure in social networks, in an effort to
understand the epidemiological significance of it. Although I have come
across much work done by physicists and computer scientists proposing
algorithms to detect community structure, I have still not found a good,
complete definition of the concept.
I understand that social scientists have studied community structure for
decades now, and have a good idea of what it means. Since I am trying to
understand community structure especially within the context of realistic
urban social networks, I thought looking at some work in sociology would be a
good way to go.
I have not yet found any good sources on the topic, however. If you might be
able to give me a few pointers, I would very much appreciate it.
Thank you for your help and time.
