nsp-ergmTerm: Nonedgewise shared partners

nsp-ergmTermR Documentation

Nonedgewise shared partners


This is just like the dsp and esp terms, except this term adds one network statistic to the model for each element in d where the i th such statistic equals the number of non-edges (that is, dyads that do not have an edge) in the network with exactly d[i] shared partners. This term can be used with directed and undirected networks.


# binary: nsp(d)



a vector of distinct integers


For directed networks, only outgoing two-path ("OTP") shared partners are counted. In other words, for a (directed) non-edge (i,j) in a directed graph, the number of shared partners counted by nsp is the number of nodes k that have edges i -> k -> j. (These may also be called homogeneous shared partners.) To count other types of shared partners instead, see dnsp.
