## Links Between Networks – Python

I have 43 networks where some of the actors overlap, and what I would like to do is to visualise this overlap. The problem is that these networks combined will have more that 40,000 nodes, so it will be very messy to stick everything into one network graph. So the next best thing is to […]

This Python code will read a Pajek graph and calculate its degree centrality using this formula … To test the result I will be using example 17 from Freeman’s (1978) Centrality in Social Networks: Conceptual Clarification. Freeman’s calculation for this example is 0.42. The graph is written in a file named graph17.net, which reads: This […]

## Calculating Degree Centrality Using Data Frames – Python

Calculating Freeman’s degree centrality for each node… …and for the graph. All the information is contained in an external file graph.csv, which contains this Where the “freq” column is the number of edges adjacent to the node. To find node centrality This script outputs the file data_graph.csv with the following information: Where CD is the […]
