Social and Economic Networks: Models and Analysis

Course Overview

Learn how to model social and economic networks and their impact on human behavior. How do networks form, why do they exhibit certain patterns, and how do their structures impact diffusion, learning, and other behaviors? We will bring together models and techniques from economics, sociology, math, physics, statistics, and computer science to answer these questions. The course begins with some empirical background on social and economic networks, and an overview of concepts used to describe and measure networks. Next, we will cover a set of models of how networks form, including random network models as well as strategic formation models, and some hybrids. We will then discuss a series of models of how networks impact behavior, including contagion, diffusion, learning, and peer influences.
