***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/ ***** Hi all, "Random networks" really is too big a topic for email list discussions. Two programs in the software Stocnet available from http://stat.gamma.rug.nl/stocnet/ can be used to generate random networks according to some specific random graph distributions: ZO for graphs with given degrees and directed graphs with given in-degrees and out-degrees, if desired also with given number of mutuals; SIENA for exponential random graphs with a variety of specifications; and for generating random repeated observations of networks developing according to actor-oriented models with given initial network observation - also according to a variety of specifications.
