English abstract

Q-measures for binary divided networks, as introduced by Flom, Friedman, Strauss and Neaigus are studied. These measures try to capture the idea of bridges between two groups in a connected undirected network. Values for these measures are calculated for building blocks such as line and star networks. As an application two small co-author networks are analyzed.

Item type: Conference paper
Keywords: Q-measures ; networks
