Identifying Community Structures from Network Data via Maximum Likelihood Methods
, 2005
"... In many economic situations it is of interest to know who interacts with whom. In international trade, for example, some theories predict that members of certaing groups will have a higher probability of trading with each other than with those in other groups. Based on a model of within and across g ..."

In many economic situations it is of interest to know who interacts with whom. In international trade, for example, some theories predict that members of certaing groups will have a higher probability of trading with each other than with those in other groups. Based on a model of within and across group interactions, we describe, characterize, and implement, a new method for identifying trading or community structures from network data. The method is based on maximum likelihood estimation, a standard statistical tool.
ergm: A Package to Fit, Simulate and Diagnose ExponentialFamily Models for Networks
 Journal of Statistical Software

"... We describe some of the capabilities of the ergm package and the statistical theory underlying it. This package contains tools for accomplishing three important, and interrelated, tasks involving exponentialfamily random graph models (ERGMs): estimation, simulation, and goodness of fit.

We describe some of the capabilities of the ergm package and the statistical theory underlying it. This package contains tools for accomplishing three important, and interrelated, tasks involving exponentialfamily random graph models (ERGMs): estimation, simulation, and goodness of fit. More precisely, ergm has the capability of approximating a maximum likelihood estimator for an ERGM given a network data set; simulating new network data sets from a fitted ERGM using Markov chain Monte Carlo; and assessing how well a fitted ERGM does at capturing characteristics of a particular network data set.
The Effects of R&D Team Colocation on Communication Patterns among R&D, Marketing, and Manufacturing
 Management Science
, 1998
"... Reducing the physical distance among R&D engineers and between R&D and marketing is widely believed to result in more frequent communication, and hence higher product development performance. However, the empirical evidence for the effect of colocation on communication frequency is problematic for ..."

Reducing the physical distance among R&D engineers and between R&D and marketing is widely believed to result in more frequent communication, and hence higher product development performance. However, the empirical evidence for the effect of colocation on communication frequency is problematic for two reasons: (1) the evidence often features either little contextual realism or doubtful internal validity, and (2) the analysis does not deal with the statistical problems typical of network data. Our study avoids the first problem by using sequential network data collected from a quasiexperiment at an industrial company that regrouped its R&D teams into a new facility. We avoid the second problem by using Wasserman and Iacobucci's (1988) method for the statistical analysis of sequential network data. Our results show that communication among R&D teams was enhanced after colocating these teams. Surprisingly, communication frequency between R&D and marketing was not affected by the increa...
p_2: A Random Effects Model with Covariates for Directed Graphs
, 2004
"... A random effects model is proposed for the analysis of binary dyadic data that represent a social network or directed graph, using nodal and/or dyadic attributes as covariates. The network structure is reflected by modeling the dependence between the relations to and from the same actor or node. Par ..."

A random effects model is proposed for the analysis of binary dyadic data that represent a social network or directed graph, using nodal and/or dyadic attributes as covariates. The network structure is reflected by modeling the dependence between the relations to and from the same actor or node. Parameter estimates are proposed that are based on an iterated generalized least squares procedure. An application is presented to a data set on friendship relations between American lawyers.
