Update 2015-11-09: This is migration from an old post.

I took the SNA course by Lada Adamic in coursera. It’s a super interesting course. In fact, I was using the networks only how a visualization tool, and that is what it make me little bit embarrassing because there are more, a lot of more. You can detect communities, know more centric nodes and a lot of other information. So, there are a lot of reasons to look the course

By other hand I like the d3 javascript library. Recently I was learning javascript, so I decided make a very little app to keep learning this library and show differents measures of centrality for each node in a set of 4 toy networks and see these measures by size, color or a label

Now, the R code to make the data:

rm(list = ls())
library("sna")
# for build a block diagonal matrix
library("Matrix")
# (https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-help/2007-June/133875.html)
library("reldist")
library("plyr")
library("rjson")

##### Functions ####
degree_sna <- function(net, norm = TRUE, ...){
degree(net, ...)/2/(if (norm) ncol(net) - 1 else 1)
}

betweenness_sna <- function(net, norm = FALSE, ...){
n <- ncol(net)
betweenness(net, ...)/2/(if (norm) (n - 1)*(n - 2)/2 else 1)
}

##### Networks ####
net.butterfly <- matrix(c(0,1,1,0,0,0,0,
1,0,1,0,0,0,0,
1,1,0,1,0,0,0,
0,0,1,0,1,0,0,

byrow = TRUE, nrow = 7)

net.star <- matrix(c(0,1,1,1,1,1,
1,0,0,0,0,0,
1,0,0,0,0,0,
1,0,0,0,0,0,
1,0,0,0,0,0,

net.line <- matrix(c(0,1,0,0,0,
1,0,1,0,0,
0,1,0,1,0,
0,0,1,0,1,

net.circular <- matrix(c(0,1,0,0,1,
1,0,1,0,0,
0,1,0,1,0,
0,0,1,0,1,
1,0,0,1,0),
byrow = TRUE, nrow = 5)

nets <- list(net.butterfly, net.star, net.line, net.circular)
net.all <- as.matrix(bdiag(net.butterfly, net.star, net.line, net.circular))
