3 Society Nodes: individuals Links: social relationship (family/work/friends/ etc.) Social networks: Many individuals with diverse social interactions between them.

4 Social networks Contacts and Influences Poll & Kochen (1958) – How great is the chance that two people chosen at random from the population will have a friend in common? – How far are people aware of the available lines of contact? The Small-World Problem – Milgram (1967) – How many intermediaries are needed to move a letter from person A to person B through a chain of acquaintances? – Letter-sending experiment: starting in Nebraska/Kansas, with a target person in Boston.

5 Social networks: Milgram’s experiment 160 letters: From Wichita (Kansas) and Omaha (Nebraska) to Sharon (Mass) Milgram, Psych Today 2, 60 (1967) who is more likely than you If you do not know the target person on a personal basis, do not try to contact him directly. Instead, mail this folder to a personal acquaintance who is more likely than you to know the target person.

6 ¡ El mundo es un pañuelo ! C’est petit le monde !! What a Small-World ! “Six degrees of separation”

7 The Small World concept in simple terms describes the fact despite their often large size, in most networks there is a relatively short path between any two nodes.

15 Graph: a pair of sets G = {P,E} where P is a set of nodes, and E is a set of edges that connect 2 elements of P. Degree of a node: the number of edges incident on the node i Degree of node i = 5

16 Type of Edges Directed edges have a direction, only go one way (citations, one way streets) Undirected no direction (committee membership, two- way streets) Weighted Not all edges are equal. (Friendships)

17 Degree Number of edges connected to a node. In-degree Number of incoming edges. Out-degree Number of outgoing edges.

18 Network parameters Diameter Maximum distance between any pair of nodes. Characteristic path length Connectivity Number of neighbours of a given node: k := degree. P(k) := Probability of having k neighbours. Clustering Are neighbours of a node also neighbours among them?

19 Characteristic path length  GLOBAL property is the number of edges in the shortest path between vertices i and j (geodesic path). The characteristic path length L of a graph is the average of the for every possible pair (i,j) i j Networks with small values of L are said to have the “Small World property”

23 Tree Network

24 Random Network: The typical distance between any two nodes in a random graph scales as the logarithm of the number of nodes. Then the Small World concept is not an indication of a particular organizing principle.

25 Random graphs – Erdos & Renyi (1960) Start with N nodes and for each pair of nodes, with probability p, add a link between them. For large N, there is a giant connected component if the average connectivity (number of links per node) is larger than 1. The average path length L in the giant component scales as L  ln N. Minimal number of links one needs to follow to go from one node to another, on average.

26 Erdös-Renyi model (1960) Poisson distribution Many properties in these graphs appear quite suddenly, at a threshold value of p = P ER (N) -If P ER ~ c / N with c < 1, then almost all vertices belong to isolated trees. -Cycles of all orders appear at P ER ~ 1/ N

27 Random Graphs Model Given N nodes connect each pair with probability p: –P(k) ~ Poisson distribution – = pN. –Most nodes degree ~. – = log(N) / log( ). –Small World property

28 Asymptotic behavior LatticeRandom graph

29 For many years typical explanation for Small- World property was random graphs –Low diameter: expected distance between two nodes is log N, where is the average outdegree and N the number of nodes. –When pairs or vertices are selected uniformly at random they are connected by a short path with high probability. But there are some inaccuracies –If A and B have a common friend C it is more likely that they themselves will be friends! (clustering). –Many real world networks exhibit this clustering property. Random networks are NOT clustered.

30 Clustering coefficient Local propierty: C(v) = # of links between neighbors n(n-1)/2 Clustering: My friends will know each other with high probability! (typical example: social networks) C(v) = 4/6 C is the average over all C(v)
