Dear Qasim, 

I doubt what I have to offer is exactly what you are looking for, but Neha Gondal and I published a few papers in which we explored how distinctly different norms of tie formation and different actor involvements at the micro level could (and did) result in distinctly different structures at the macro level, specifically in the sense of differently structured components within a single network. You won't find a ready-to-use model in our work, but conceptually it seems to be in the ballpark of what interests you. The first article is most methodological and technical of the three, using ERGM. The second is the most conceptual/theoretical. The third will interest you least as it is most historical.

2) Neha Gondal and Paul D. McLean, “Linking Tie-meaning with Network Structure: Variable Connotations of Personal Lending in a Multiple-Network Ecology,” Poetics 41: 122-50 




3) Paul D. McLean and Neha Gondal, “The Circulation of Interpersonal Credit in Renaissance Florence,” European Journal of Sociology/Archives Européennes de Sociologie 55, 2: 135-76 



Good luck with your search.

Qasim, 

You might want to look at how this is represented in ERGMs. A good 
place to start is 

Goodreau S, Kitts J, Morris M. Birds of a Feather, or Friend of a 
Friend? Using Statistical Network Analysis to Investigate Adolescent 
Social Networks. Demography. 2009;46(1):103–25. 

Note, this is a model for the prevalence of ties, so not a true dynamic 
model of tie formation and dissolution. For that you would need a 
temporal ergm. See: 

Krivitsky PN, Handcock MS. A separable model for dynamic networks. 
J R Stat Soc B. 2014;76(1):29-46. doi: 10.1111/rssb.12014. 

This is more of a technical paper. Pavel and I have a more applied paper 
under review that examines how some simple underlying processes of tie 
formation and dissolution (e.g., variation in mean degree by group, 
homophily, and a degree 1 preference) lead to differences in component 
size distributions for networks and network exposure for individuals. 

best, 
Martina
