Introduction to social network methods (faculty.ucr.edu/~hanneman/nettext/)
This on-line textbook introduces many of the basics of formal approaches to the analysis of social networks. It provides very brief overviews of a number of major areas with some examples. The textbook was developed to support Sociology 157, an undergraduate introductory course on social network analysis. The course is taught by Robert A. Hanneman of the Department of Sociology at the University of California, Riverside.
