Statnet software has been used to produce a number of “network movie” videos. These videos demonstrate the use of the statnet software in scientific and/or policy applications. They can be quite helpful for introducing the ideas behind network modeling to a general audience, or for inspiration about how to visualize and communicate network dynamics.
Here, we list several of the videos that are publicly available, together with link and citation information. Note that these are complementary with our workshop materials, which are explicitly didactic and go into much greater technical depth. For the network movies, the key package is
ndtv (written by Skye Bender-deMoll), and one of our workshops is specifically devoted to the use of that package.
An illustration of the impact of the timing and sequence of dynamic partnerships on the growth of the “forward reachable path” – the network foundation for transmission of infection. The model for the dynamic network is a temporal ERGM estimated from the National Longitudinal Survey of Adolescent Health (2000).
An illustration of how network models can be used to characterize and simulate the formation of amyloid fibrils. Includes a demonstration of fibril formation using ERGMs.
