Reference Measures for Exponential-Family Random Graph Models


This page describes how to specify the reference measures (baseline distributions) (the set of possible networks Y and the baseline weights h(y) to functions in the ergm package. It also provides an indexed list of the references visible to the ergm's API.

Specifying reference measures


The reference measure (Y,h(y)) is specified on the right-hand side of a one-sided formula passed typically as the reference argument.
