I’ve just come across the following paper:
Anheier, H; Gerhards, J; and Romo, F. 1995. “Forms of Capital and Social Structure in Cultural Fields: Examining Bourdieu’s Social Topography” American Journal of Sociology 100(4):859-903.
The authors apply a blockmodelling algorithm that they developed called ICON-H (Iterative Combinatorial Optimization on Networks with Hierarchical extensions). Can anyone tell me whether this algorithm has been implemented in any of the available SNA software packages?
Thanks for your help.
