ERGM is a statistical approach to modeling social network structure that goes beyond the descriptive methods conventionally used in social network analysis. We compare these models theoretically, via simulation, and through a real-data example in order to assess their relative strengths and weaknesses. You are in: North America Recent advances in statistical software have helped make ERGM accessible to social scientists, but a concise guide to using ERGM has been lacking.

This volume introduces the basic concepts of Exponential Random Graph Modeling (ERGM), gives examples of why it is used, and shows the reader how to conduct basic ERGM analyses in their own research.

Thousand Oaks, CA 91320 Variational approximations for the exponential random graph model Angelo Mele, Johns Hopkins University Lingjiong Zhu, University of Minnesota We study a model of sequential network formation that converges to the exponential random graph model (ERGM).
