netrankr: netrankr: An R package for centrality and partial rankings in...

Description Details


netrankr provides several functions to analyze partial rankings for network centrality. The main focus lies on methods that do not necessarily rely on indices like degree, betweenness or closeness. However, the package also provides more than 20 indices, which can be constructed via a Rstudio addin.

The package follows the philosophy, that centrality can be decomposed in a series of micro steps. Starting from a network, indirect_relations can be derived which can either be aggregated into an index with aggregate_positions, or alternatively turned into a partial ranking with positional_dominance. The partial ranking can then be further analyzed with exact_rank_prob, to obtain probabilistic centrality rankings.


Some features of the package are:

The package provides several additional vignettes that explain the functionality of netrankr and its conceptual ideas. See browseVignettes(package = 'netrankr')
