This is an interesting perspective...

There was a paper I recently read about secret society networks... about how secrecy is more important than efficiency in illegal & secret society networks.
Maybe this could be true even of drug cartels, considering the similarity in its clandestine nature.
In such networks, they say that degree is more significant as an indicator as compared to other centrality measures like betweenness or closeness.

The paper is: The Social Organization of Conspiracy: Illegal Networks in the Heavy Electrical Equipment Industry
Authors; Wayne E. Baker & Robert R. Faulkner
Americal Sociological Review, Vol. 58, No. 6, 837-860

Maybe this could help.

So for your own conferences, etc, why not start your post with a 140 character summary (Twitter limit; shorter would be better) including a bit.ly (or equiv) link so I (and others) can copy and paste into Twitter.

Dear all

I have a question that may be very basic while I need as many diverse and potential interpretations as possible.

How would you interpret the theoretical and practical meaning of dyadic constraint and redundancy (not the constraint (constra) indicator in UCINET) in advice network?

It is an interpersonal network from a small-sized (<100) company.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Mutual information in three dimensions can become negative and thus indicate a net export of uncertainty by a system or, in other words, synergy in how knowledge functions are distributed over the carriers. Aggregation at the regional level (NUTS3) of the data organized at the municipal level (NUTS5) shows that 48.5% of the regional synergy is provided by the three metropolitan regions of Stockholm, Gothenburg, and Malmo/Lund. Sweden can be considered as a centralized and hierarchically organized system. Our results accord with other statistics, but this Triple Helix indicator measures synergy more specifically and precisely. The analysis also provides us with validation for using this measure in previous studies of more regionalized systems of innovation (such as Hungary and Norway).

Grabowicz, Jose J. Ramasco, Victor M. Eguiluz http://unam.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&idē501a9a28&e”8efa683e In this chapter we describe some of the results of research studies on the structure, dynamics and social activity in online social networks. We present them in the interdisciplinary context of network science, sociological studies and computer science. ---------------------------- A simple model clarifies the complicated relationships of complex networks Bojin Zheng, Hongrun Wu, Jun Qin, Wenhua Du, Jianmin Wang, Deyi Li http://unam.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&id37e27f27&e”8efa683e Researchers have discovered many types of complex networks and have proposed hundreds of models to explain their origins, yet most of the relationships within each of these types are still uncertain. Furthermore, because of the large number of types and models of complex networks, it is widely thought that these complex networks cannot all share a simple universal explanation. However, here we find that a simple model can produce many types of complex networks, including scale-free, small-world, ultra small-world, Delta-distribution, compact, fractal, regular and random networks, and by revising this model, we show that one can produce community-structure networks. Using this model and its revised versions, the complicated relationships among complex networks can be illustrated. Given that complex networks are regarded as a model tool of complex systems, the results here bring a new perspective to understanding the power law phenomena observed in various complex systems. ----------------------------- Control Centrality and Hierarchical Structure in Complex Networks Liu Y-Y, Slotine J-J, BarabŠsi A-L (2012) PLoS ONE 7(9): e44459. http://unam.us4.list-manage2.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&id}4a593e5f&e”8efa683e We introduce the concept of control centrality to quantify the ability of a single node to control a directed weighted network. We calculate the distribution of control centrality for several real networks and find that it is mainly determined by the networkís degree distribution. We show that in a directed network without loops the control centrality of a node is uniquely determined by its layer index or topological position in the underlying hierarchical structure of the network. Inspired by the deep relation between control centrality and hierarchical structure in a general directed network, we design an efficient attack strategy against the controllability of malicious networks. ----------------------------- Robustness and Information Propagation in Attractors of Random Boolean NetworksLloyd-Price J, Gupta A, Ribeiro AS (2012) PLoS ONE 7(7): e42018. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0042018 http://unam.us4.list-manage1.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&id≤d8279545&e”8efa683e Attractors represent the long-term behaviors of Random Boolean Networks. We study how the amount of information propagated between the nodes when on an attractor, as quantified by the average pairwise mutual information (I_A), relates to the robustness of the attractor to perturbations (R_A). We find that the dynamical regime of the network affects the relationship between I_A and R_A. In the ordered and chaotic regimes, I_A is anti-correlated with R_A, implying that attractors that are highly robust to perturbations have necessarily limited information propagation. Between order and chaos (for so-called ďcriticalĒ networks) these quantities are uncorrelated. Finite size effects cause this behavior to be visible for a range of networks, from having a sensitivity of 1 to the point where I_A is maximized. In this region, the two quantities are weakly correlated and attractors can be almost arbitrarily robust to perturbations without restricting the propagation of information in the network. ______________________________________ Dawn R.

Our program offers structured and systematic training in theoretically and methodologically advanced research in sociology and in the social sciences in general. Special features of the program include: - A problem-driven approach with a substantive focus on topics such as social networks and social capital, migration, social integration, stratification and inequality, households, and organizations. - A strong focus on the integration of social theory and methods of data-analysis. - Hands on experience in state of the art techniques of social science data analysis. - Hands on experience in writing a publishable research article: the master's thesis that completes the program is written in the format of an article.

Sociology and Social Research is currently the best research masterís program in the Netherlands across all disciplines in the social and behavioral sciences voted by NVAO (the Dutch-Flanders Organization for Accreditation of educational programs). The profile of the program ensures that the labor market position of alumni is excellent: students who have completed theprogram are very successful in acquiring subsequent positions as PhD students all over the world, as researchers in institutes and organizations outside the university system or as trainees in management or governmental organizations. The target group of students consists of promising students with a Bachelor's degree or an equivalent period of at least three years of undergraduate study and qualifications that justify the expectation of successful completion of the program in due time. This includes students with a BA in Sociology or in the Social Sciences, broadly conceived and including Economics, Political Sciences, Public Administration, Demography, and (Social) Psychology and also Applied Statistics. While the program is designed for students with above-average grades, motivation of students andaffinity with the program have proven to be of greatest importance. Applicants with deficiencies in methods and statistics can be admitted conditional upon participation in a methods and statistics summer course right before the start of the first year of the program that is offered specifically for incoming research master's students by the Graduate School of Social and Behavioral Sciences of Utrecht University. Students from outside the Netherlands are explicitly encouraged to apply. About 50% of the students are from outside the Netherlands, up to now including students from Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, various countries in Central and Eastern Europe as well as students from, e.g., China, Hungary, Israel, Taiwan, and Turkey.Some teaching and research assistantships are available for students. Also,some financial support is available for participation in summer schools outside the Netherlands (for example, Essex, Ljubljana, and Ann Arbor). Admission to the program is selective. The number of new students per year is limited to +/-20. We are currently looking for talented candidates for the academic year 2013/2014. Courses for this group will start on September 1, 2013.

A Very Short Introduction ***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hallo, I write to announce the publication of my book: G. Caldarelli, M. Catanzaro ďNetworks. A Very Short IntroductionĒ Oxford University Press. Summary: From ecosystems to Facebook and from the Internet to the global financial market, networks play a central role in nature and society. Phenomena such as climate change, pandemics, and financial crises are based on networked structures; and networks give insights into how social environments affect health and behaviour. In this Very Short Introduction, Guido Caldarelli and Michele Catanzaro discuss the nature and variety of networks, using familiar examples from society, technology, nature, and history. They show how networks self-organize and the role they play in processes like large-scale blackouts and computer virus outbreaks. They also describe the wide and important applications of network theory in a range of areas, including genetics, ecology, technology, and management. http://bit.ly/TXiOtA (UK) http://bit.ly/VHFbKk (US) A short video (http://youtu.be/NRWSF1c0Ez0) and a blogpost (http://blog.oup.com/2012/10/networks-very-short-introduction/) on the subject. How to get it (£7.99, $11.95): --Bookshops in UK and USA. --Bookshops in Spain. Possibly, in La Central and Laie in the next few days: if you are interested, send me an email and I will alert you when the book is available there. --Amazon. http://amzn.to/PGUV8w --Other online booksellers. http://bit.ly/RXxjxj (for example) --Ebook. soon available for Kindle and other platforms: if you are interested, send me an email and I will alert you when they are available.

Abstract deadline Dec 13, 2012! ht.acm.org/ht2013 #ht2013 Track 1: Linking people (Social Media) is likely to be of interest to many people on this list. http://ht.acm.org/ht2013/tracks/social/ Social media has revolutionized how people create and consume information and interact with one another. On sites such as Twitter, Facebook, the various blogs and wikis, people share ideas, opinions, and interests, and respond to those expressed by others. Social media systems have thereby generalized the conventional notion of a hyperlink to imply connections between individuals in particular, via their shared content, media, concepts, and other artifacts. A characteristic property of this new genre of connections is that they promote rich social interactions among individuals involved in the sharing and artifact-building process. At the same time, the growing popularity of these systems presents some challenges: how to motivate new users to participate, how to sustain communities over time, how to manage social media traffic or decipher the large information spaces engendering the interactions. Making sense of these complex interactions has attracted significant attention in various research communities over the recent years. This track is geared towards developing deeper insights into the mechanisms of information exchange, user and network characterization as well as the discovery, analysis, and modeling of the dynamic social processes in these systems. It provides a key forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the current state of art. Addressing several problems in this space necessitates expertise in a variety of domains, spanning Computer and Information Science, Social Sciences, Psychology, Math and Economics. Hence submissions promoting interdisciplinary collaboration are highly encouraged. We invite original, high-quality submissions on all aspects of social media.

Dawn ============================================== Natural networks as thermodynamic systems Tuomo Hartonen1, Arto Annila1,2,3,* Complexity http://unam.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&idí84eca378&e”8efa683e Natural networks are considered as thermodynamic systems that evolve from one state to another by consuming free energy. The least-time consumption of free energy is found to result in ubiquitous scale-free characteristics. The network evolution will yield the scale-independent qualities because the least-time imperative will prefer attachment of nodes that contribute most to the free-energy consumption. The analysis of evolutionary equation of motion, derived from statistical physics of open systems, reveals that evolution of natural networks is a path-dependent and nondeterministic process. Despite the noncomputability of evolution, many mathematical models of networks can be recognized as approximations of the least-time process as well as many measures of networks can be appreciated as practical assessments of the system's thermodynamic status. ============================================== The Scaling of Human Interactions with City Size Markus Schlšpfer, Luis M. A. Bettencourt, Mathias Raschke, Rob Claxton, Zbigniew Smoreda, Geoffrey B. West, Carlo Ratti http://unam.us4.list-manage1.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&idíc3052463&e”8efa683e The pace of life accelerates with city size, manifested in a per capita increase of almost all socioeconomic rates such as GDP, wages, violent crime or the transmission of certain contagious diseases. Here, we show that the structure and dynamics of the underlying network of human interactions provides a possible unifying mechanism for the origin of these pervasive regularities. By analyzing billions of anonymized call records from two European countries we find that human social interactions follow a superlinear scale-invariant relationship with city population size. This systematic acceleration of the interaction intensity takes place within specific constraints of social grouping. Together, these results provide a general microscopic basis for a deeper understanding of cities as co-located social networks in space and time, and of the emergent urban socioeconomic processes that characterize complex human societies. ============================================== Identifying influential spreaders and efficiently estimating infection numbers in epidemic models: A walk counting approach Frank Bauer and Joseph T. Lizier Europhysics Letters, 99, 68007 doi:10.1209/0295-5075/99/68007 http://unam.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?ub0ac9b4e8565f2967a8304b&id{7ec905b5&e”8efa683e We introduce a new method to efficiently approximate the number of infections resulting from a given initially infected node in a network of susceptible individuals. Our approach is based on counting the number of possible infection walks of various lengths to each other node in the network. We analytically study the properties of our method, in particular demonstrating different forms for SIS and SIR disease spreading (e.g., under the SIR model our method counts self-avoiding walks). In comparison to existing methods to infer the spreading efficiency of different nodes in the network (based on degree, k-shell decomposition analysis and different centrality measures), our method directly considers the spreading process and, as such, is unique in providing estimation of actual numbers of infections. Crucially, in simulating infections on various real-world networks with the SIR model, we show that our walks-based method improves the inference of the effectiveness of nodes over a wide range of infection rates compared to existing methods. We also analyse the trade-off between estimate accuracy and computational cost, showing that the better accuracy here can still be obtained at a comparable computational cost to other methods. ============================================== ______________________________________ Dawn R.
