Computational Analysis of the Structure and Dynamics in Networks with Negative Ties and Conflicting Relationships

Samin Aref; in Collaboration with Zachary Neal (Michigan State University, East Lansing, USA), Jana Diesner, Ly Dinh, Rezvaneh Rezapour (all: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA), Sanja Šćepanović (NOKIA Bell Labs, Cambridge, United Kingdom), Mark Wilson, Andrew Mason (both: The University of Auckland, New Zealand)

This project focuses on developing, testing, and implementing computational methods and theories for studying negative relationships between individuals (or other entities) and exploring their impacts on the structure and dynamics of groups and collectives (signed networks).  Detailed Description
