Network-Sci Example Network & Analysis

The Network

The network used in this example represents a social network connecting friends (the choice of names and pictures was random).
Each node represents a person and the nodes are grouped according to the people’s jobs. The links represent the « Friends with » relationship.
Each node represents a person and the nodes are grouped according to the people’s jobs. The links represent the « Friends with » relationship.

The Network Analysis

The network has 12 nodes (3 isolated), 27 links and a density value of 0.409.
The person who has most friends in this network is Bernard with a node degree of 4 and a P(i) coefficient of 0.7 , closely followed by Claire and Nicole with a node degree of 3 and a P(i) coefficient 0.6 .
The persons with the least number of friends are Smith, John and Zoe with a node degree of 0 and a P(i) coefficient of 0 . Knowing the fact that these persons are actually gamers and tend to be isolated, it won’t be absurd to assume that they don’t have many friends (at least in this network).
The next table (Figure 3) displays the degree summary of our network, while the histogram in Figure 4 displays the degrees’ frequencies.
The graph is clustered into four groups (Figure 5) : Data Scientist, Gamer, Nutritionist and Manager.
