Dynamic Network Analysis

Dynamic network analysis (DNA) varies from traditional social network analysis in that it can handle large dynamic multi-mode, multi-link networks with varying levels of uncertainty. DNA, like quantum mechanics, is a theory in which relations are probabilistic, acts of measurement change the network, movement in one part of a network propagates throughout the entire system, and so on. However, unlike quantum mechanical atoms, DNA nodes can learn. The Dynamic Network Analysis Section focuses on advancing our understanding of social networks through DNA. The section will organize meetings, newsletters, websites, mailing lists and/or special journal issues to achieve its objectives, including the fostering of rich dialog among DNA researchers.
