Computes whether an individual spans (has connections in) another niche and the number of other niches each individual spans to.
An object of class blau initialized with the function
When creating niches, indicates standard deviation around the mean in each dimension to include in niche. A larger value will make niches larger and therefore include more individuals.
This function requires sociometric network data and identifies ties that bridge niches. The preferred format is a named edgelist, although an adjacency matrix with properly named rows and columns is also acceptable. Network information will be matched to organization and demographic information by these names.
j in niches
beta, if individual
i is in niche
alpha and individual
j is in niche
j have an edge between them, then
i spans to niche
j spans to niche
alpha. However, if
i is in both niche
alpha and niche
i would not span to
i is already in niche
