***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Kristie, I think that the most interesting and robust approach to cohesion and connectivity is the structural cohesion model: White, D. and F. Harary (2001). The cohesiveness of blocks in social networks: Node connectivity and conditional density. Sociological Methodology, 305–359. Moody, J. and D. White (2003). Social cohesion and embeddedness: A hierarchical conception of social groups. American Sociological Review 68(1), 103–28. Additionally you can take a look to White's wiki: http://intersci.ss.uci.edu/wiki/index.php/Cohesive_blocking As far as I know, cohesive blocking is only implemented in igraph (http://igraph.sourceforge.net/) Salut! 2010/5/21 Kristie Ogilvie <[log in to unmask]>: > ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** > > I am requesting any literature references on the most accepted measures of > cohesiveness or density.
