For example, Mele (2011) considers a sequential model and then shows that it becomes effectively equivalent to a certain ERGM. 8Clearly, there are other settings with interdependencies, such as time series and spatial settings.
Tractable and Consistent Random Graph Models
As shown by Mele (2011) this leads to an ERGM specification that includes “two stars,” or links Another is that agents might value bridging separate groups.
Tractable and Consistent Random Graph Models
Such a formulation can be viewed as an ERGM, as shown by Mele (2011).
Tractable and Consistent Random Graph Models
The Mele result shows that the potential function associated with the game essentially defines the corresponding ERGM. 48For an alternative specification in terms of a Bayesian equilibrium, see Leung (2012).
