***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Question 1 of 2) I have been trying to run Siena but have encountered a problem: More than 3 waves causes in the program freezing/failing to respond etc. And no, this is not just that the program needs more time to process the data - it is an actual freeze that requires a restart of the program. I have tried: using the supplied data. using no attributes (actor waves only). removing all model options (density etc) so that the program has few functions to perform. using a different PC. uninstalling the program and reinstalling a new download. The data I wish to analyse: 12 groups, mean 6 actors in each group and mean 6 waves for each group, 10 attributes. My exploration: if a group achieve a structure by wave X (density,centralisation, etc) and they have attributes >=Y (motivation, social familiarity, etc) then their performance (group and individual) is more likely to be >=Z I lack the necessary knowledge in IT, mathematics and SNA to understand the problem. Is it simply that STOcNET can only run 3 waves at any one time? If there is not 'fix' is is possible to run multiples of 3 with overlaps? i.e. waves 123, then 345, then 567? Question 2 of 2) I would appreciate thoughts on which 'structures' to examine. I have found a few papers that touch upon similar topics but if anyone has any ideas that they think would be worth trying out but haven't had the time to try, then I would be more than happy to accomodate.
