We are working with a few colleagues to define a set of simple
properties, similar to the degree distribution, the clustering
etc, but designed for the analysis of affiliation networks (modeled
Our aim is to identify and define properly tools which would be
on most affiliation networks (just like the clustering coefficient
classical networks, for instance).
Despite many affiliation networks have been studied, and many
properties have been introduced to this purpose, we do not think such
general study has already be done. It seems to us that it would help
in various contexts.
To this regard, we are collecting references on affiliation
We have already found the ones in the attached file, but certainly
several important ones are still missing. Please send us any
you may consider relevant for our study.
Of course, the whole list of references we will collect will be
available on the Web.
