Dear Soc-Net Colleagues:
Can anyone point to specific theories or studies wherein increased
density is assumed to lead to increased output or improved performance?
I assume that if one is studying communication networks that this
assumption might hold. In other cases, maybe not (I am thinking of the
value of 'weak ties' and 'structural holes').
Alternatively, has there been work done (comparatively speaking) to
uncover 'optimal' densities as it relates to networks?
Any help that you can offer in this would be great!
