Network Analysis

Network analysis looks at relationships within a dataset, such as epistolary and social media connections, conversations between characters in a novel, and the transfer of wealth from one individual to another. In network analysis, one looks at vertices (called ‘nodes’) connected by lines (called ‘edges’).
