Advanced ERGMs using statnet
David Hunter, Pavel Krivitsky
This workshop will provide a tutorial of advanced usage of ergm and extension packages, focusing on binary networks. Topics include specifying complex structural constraints, estimation tuning, use of term operators, and observational (e.g., missing data) structure. Also included is using the new ergm.multi package for modelling multilayer and multimode networks, as well as joint models of ensembles of networks. Prerequisites: Familiarity with R and ergm. If new to ERGMs, the workshop ERGMs using statnet is strongly suggested.
