ergm.rank-package: Fit, Simulate and Diagnose Exponential-Family Models for...

Description Details Author(s) References See Also


ergm.rank is a set of extensions to R package ergm to fit and simulate from exponential-family random graph models for networks whose edge weights are ranks. For a list of functions type help(package='ergm') and help(package='ergm.rank')

Mainly, it implements the CompleteOrder reference measure for valued ERGMs (documented here), and provides some rank-order change statistics (documented here).

For a complete list of the functions, use library(help="ergm") and library(help="ergm.rank") or read the rest of the manual.

When publishing results obtained using this package, please cite the original authors as described in citation(package="ergm.rank").

All programs derived from this package must cite it.


This package contains functions specific to using ergm to model networks whose dyad values are ranks. Examples include preferences, valued ties reduced to ranks, etc..

For detailed information on how to download and install the software, go to the Statnet project website: A tutorial, support newsgroup, references and links to further resources are provided there.
