***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear Carl, I used R in a PhD course on social networks. You still can find the course website including additional network functions, problem sets and solutions at: http://merlin.fae.ua.es/vanderleij/socialnetworks_0809/index.htm I mostly used the igraph package, which is a good starting point. If you are more interested in the statistical stuff like p*/ERGM and the longitudinal models of Siena, you should also consider the RSiena package (as mentioned by Tom) and the statnet package. Hope this helps.
