    Social network analysis software (SNA software) is software which facilitates quantitative or qualitative analysis of social networks, by describing features of a network either through numerical or visual representation. Networks can consist of anything from families, project teams, classrooms, sports teams, legislatures, nation-states. Social network analysis is used widely in the social and behavioral sciences, as well as in economics, marketing, and industrial engineering. The social network perspective focuses on relationships among social entities and is an important addition to standard social and behavioral research, which is primarily concerned with attributes of the social units.4/5(12).

The first three chapters provide a background to social network analysis, and introduce key concepts like dyads, cliques, centrality, and balance.2/5(1).

Social network analysis (SNA) is the process of investigating social structures through the use of networks and graph theory. It characterizes networked structures in terms of nodes (individual actors, people, or things within the network) and the ties, edges, or links (relationships or interactions) that connect them.

Examples of social structures commonly visualized through social network. An Edgelist is the other primary form of data storage for social network analysis.

This only captures information about existing ties so it needs to be supplemented with knowledge of the total number of actors in the network (even if they do not have any ties).

In the example edgelist in Figure4. Also on the sakai workspace you will find a selection of chapters from the book, Exploratory Social Network Analysis with Pajek (Cambridge, ), by Wouter de Nooy, Andrej Mrvar, and Vladimir Batagelj.
