Abstract

Signed Networks allow explicit show of trust/distrust relationships between actors. In this poster, we provide novel measures for analyzing the following phenomena in signed networks: (i) reciprocal behavior between pairs of actors in terms of trusting/distrusting each other, and (ii) equivalence of actors in terms of their patterns of trusting/distrusting other actors.

Keywords
