However, these centrality measures do not take into account the weights of an edge between two nodes. As well, I've been using k-cores, cliques as indicators of structures of community. However one of the things is that we can have strength of community and community may be defined by the number of interactions among its members (taking into account edge weights). Are there any social network analytic measures that do take into account the weights of an edge? I couldn't seem to find any, and if so, do they exist in UCINET and Pajek? If there any references or SNA books that I should look into that look at edge weights, I'd be happy to know about them. Thanks for any help in advance.
