Social networks: Prestige, centrality, and influence (Invited paper)

Abstract : We deliver a short overview of di erent centrality measures and influence concepts in social networks, and present the relation-algebraic approach to the concepts of power and influence. First, we briefly discuss four kinds of measures of centrality: the ones based on degree, closeness, betweenness, and the eigenvector-related measures. We consider centrality of a node and of a network. Moreover, we give a classi cation of the centrality measures based on a topology of network flows. Furthermore, we present a certain model of influence in a social network and discuss some applications of relation algebra and RelView to this model.
