Models for Network Graphs
In this chapter, we turn to the topic of modeling network graphs. We introduce a number of important classes of network graph models, and we illustrate some of the various statistical uses to which these models have been put, including the detection of network motifs, the evaluation of proposed network generative mechanisms, and the assessment of potential predictive factors of relational ties.
