Prof. Pavel Oleinikov (QAC)
Wednesday, November 30, 2016
11.50a – 1.10p — Allbritton 206
Brief Description: Networks can be used as a descriptive tool to help with identification of important individuals and connections, and they can be used as a “null model” for simulations of social behavior.
This talk will introduce the concepts of network analysis and demonstrate the steps involved in conducting a research project.
