whether the hierachy is for the '
person hierarchy refers to the inclusion relations among the actors, whereas the
relation hierarchy refers to the inclusion relations among the ties. Both are from the perspective of a chosen actor of reference in the given network.
An array that represents the partial order structure of the respective hierarchy.
The cumulation of the person hierarchy is obtained through the
