Exponential random graph model (ERGM)

Topic:

Networks

Definition:

“…commonly called the p* class of models (Frank and Strauss, 1986; Pattison and Wasserman, 1999; Robins et al., 1999; Wasserman and Pattison, 1996). These probability models for networks on a given set of actors allow generalization beyond the restrictive dyadic independence assumption of the earlier p1 model class (Holland and Leinhardt, 1981). Accordingly, they permit models to be built from a more realistic construal of the structural foundations of social behavior.”
