Modeling Groups in Social Networks

Abstract : Studies in social network analysis consider the behavior of a group to be equivalent to the "sum" of individual behaviors. However, a group has to be considered as a complex system where emerging phenomena can appear. In this paper, a formalism is proposed to resolve this problematic by modeling groups in social networks using pretopology as a generalization of the graph theory. We also give an example of simulation using our formalism.
