For years, following a course on paleography from Professor Jean Preston, then Curator of Rare Books at Princeton University Library, I would purchase manuscript leaves, hoping to use these in teaching such courses to scholars desiring to edit medieval texts.
Connections[ edit ] Homophily: The extent to which actors form ties with similar versus dissimilar others. Similarity can be defined by gender, race, age, occupation, educational achievement, status, values or any other salient characteristic. The number of content-forms contained in a tie.
The extent to which two actors reciprocate each other's friendship or other interaction.
A measure of the completeness of relational triads. An individual's assumption of network closure i. Transitivity is an outcome of the individual or situational trait of Need for Cognitive Closure.
The tendency for actors to have more ties with geographically close others. An individual whose weak ties fill a structural holeproviding the only link between two individuals or clusters.
It also includes the shortest route when a longer one is unfeasible due to a high risk of message distortion or delivery failure.
Centrality refers to a group of metrics that aim to quantify the "importance" or "influence" in a variety of senses of a particular node or group within a network. The proportion of direct ties in a network relative to the total number possible.
The minimum number of ties required to connect two particular actors, as popularized by Stanley Milgram 's small world experiment and the idea of 'six degrees of separation'.
The absence of ties between two parts of a network. Finding and exploiting a structural hole can give an entrepreneur a competitive advantage.

This concept was developed by sociologist Ronald Burtand is sometimes referred to as an alternate conception of social capital. Defined by the linear combination of time, emotional intensity, intimacy and reciprocity i. Segmentation[ edit ] Groups are identified as ' cliques ' if every individual is directly tied to every other individual, ' social circles ' if there is less stringency of direct contact, which is imprecise, or as structurally cohesive blocks if precision is wanted.
A measure of the likelihood that two associates of a node are associates. A higher clustering coefficient indicates a greater 'cliquishness'.
The degree to which actors are connected directly to each other by cohesive bonds. Structural cohesion refers to the minimum number of members who, if removed from a group, would disconnect the group.
Exploration of the data is done through displaying nodes and ties in various layouts, and attributing colors, size and other advanced properties to nodes.
Visual representations of networks may be a powerful method for conveying complex information, but care should be taken in interpreting node and graph properties from visual displays alone, as they may misrepresent structural properties better captured through quantitative analyses.
A positive edge between two nodes denotes a positive relationship friendship, alliance, dating and a negative edge between two nodes denotes a negative relationship hatred, anger.
Signed social network graphs can be used to predict the future evolution of the graph. In signed social networks, there is the concept of "balanced" and "unbalanced" cycles. A balanced cycle is defined as a cycle where the product of all the signs are positive.
According to balance theorybalanced graphs represent a group of people who are unlikely to change their opinions of the other people in the group. Unbalanced graphs represent a group of people who are very likely to change their opinions of the people in their group.
For example, a group of 3 people A, B, and C where A and B have a positive relationship, B and C have a positive relationship, but C and A have a negative relationship is an unbalanced cycle.
This group is very likely to morph into a balanced cycle, such as one where B only has a good relationship with A, and both A and B have a negative relationship with C.
By using the concept of balanced and unbalanced cycles, the evolution of signed social network graphs can be predicted.
One benefit of this approach is that it allows researchers to collect qualitative data and ask clarifying questions while the network data is collected.
The specific problem is:How to Write a Comparative Analysis. Throughout your academic career, you'll be asked to write papers in which you compare and contrast two things: two texts, two theories, two historical figures, two scientific processes, and so on.
There are two basic ways to organize the body of your paper. In text-by-text, you discuss all of A. Sep 03, · How to Write a Comparative Essay.
Perhaps you have been assigned a comparative essay in class, or need to write a comprehensive comparative report for work.
