The theory of social networks allows us to mathematically model and analyze the relationships between governments, organizations and even the rival factions warring on Game of Thrones.
Commonly, in the field of social network analysis, one uses a graph – also called a network – where the vertices, or nodes, represent individuals and the edges represent something about the relationships or interactions between individuals. These networks might represent Facebook friendships, or help us understand the spread of disease.
This episode focuses on one model of a social network that encodes whether relationships are positive or negative — in other words, if they’re friendly or hostile — and the notion of structural balance.
