Presented in a comprehensive manner, this book provides a comprehensive foundation in algebraic approaches for the analysis of different types of social networks such as multiple, signed, and affiliation networks. The study of such configurations corresponds to the structural analysis within the social sciences, and the methods applied for the analysis are in the areas of abstract algebra, combinatorics, and graph theory.

Current research in social networks has moved toward the examination of more realistic but also more complex social relations by which agents or actors are connected in multiple ways. Addressing this trend, this book offers hands-on training of the algebraic procedures presented along with the computer package multiplex, written by the book's author specifically to perform analyses of multiple social networks. An introductory section on both complex networks and for R will feature, however the subjects themselves correspond to advanced courses on social network analysis with the specialization on algebraic models and methods.

J. ANTONIO RIVERO OSTOIC, PHD, is a post doctorate fellow at the School of Culture and Society, Aarhus University, Denmark, and a research associate at the University of San Simón (CESU). With a background in sociology and social sciences his research is mainly focused on social networks. He developed the R packages multiplex and multigraph for performing algebraic analysis and visualization of complex systems.
