Social circles: a simple structure for agent-based social network models

By L Hamill and Geoffrey Gilbert

Abstract

None of the standard network models fit well with sociological observations of real social\ud networks. This paper presents a simple structure for use in agent-based models of large\ud social networks. Taking the idea of social circles, it incorporates key aspects of large social\ud networks such as low density, high clustering and assortativity of degree of connectivity. The\ud model is very flexible and can be used to create a wide variety of artificial social worlds
