Workshop on the Statistical Analysis of Networks

Apr 30, 2018 · Dublin, Ireland

Venue Capacity: 30 people

The capacity of the venue is about 30 people but because of no-shows, we have a policy of first-come, first-served on the night in the event of the room filling up. Managing no-shows is a problem all Meetups have to deal with and this is the fairest method we can think of. While we have never been in a position to turn anyone away for capacity reasons, it is always a possibility, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment on the night. We have the upstairs room booked from[masked] so if the room is in use till that time, we will gather in the room below beforehand.

In the second part of this three-part series we continue our work on the basics of network analysis. We assume no prior knowledge of networks, and we will try to make this workshop as standalone as possible, so attendance at previous workshops is not necessary.

I will be using the statistical programming language R for this workshop, and the use of the igraph library which does most of the graph processing. It is my understanding that NetworkX in python is similar, but I will not be covering that in detail.

This workshop will focus on the quantitative description of networks and uses these quantities to introduce the basics of random graph models - describing the basic models and how we can use them in practice.

*Please bring fully charged laptops and your own internet connectivity - tethering off a phone should be fine. Further details of software and libraries used will be provided closer to the time.*
