Software Tools for the Statistical Analysis of Network Data

Statnet is a collection of packages for statistical network analysis that are designed to work together because they share common data representations and 'API' design. They provide an integrated set of tools for the representation, visualization, analysis, and simulation of many different forms of network data. This package is designed to make it easy to install and load the key 'statnet' packages in a single step. Learn more about 'statnet' at <>. Tutorials for many packages can be found at <>. For an introduction to functions in this package, type help(package='statnet').

Public and Private repositories

To facilitate open development of the package while giving the core developers an opportunity to publish on their developments before opening them up for general use, this project comprises two repositories:

  • A public repository statnet/statnet
  • A private repository statnet/statnet-private

The intention is that all developments in statnet/statnet-private will eventually make their way into statnet/statnet and onto CRAN.

Developers and Contributing Users to the Statnet Project should read for information about the relationship between the public and the private repository and the workflows involved.
