Title: “Network dynamics of social capital”
Social capital is always embedded in social networks. Such networks are inherently dynamic. Their dynamics is affected in various ways by endogenous and exogenous effects. The study of analogous dynamic networks is being carried out in various other fields, ranging from epidemics to telecommunications. With this cross-disciplinary project, we intend to study the interplay of social capital and network dynamics, using advanced modeling tools from research on complex networks to analyze and interpret available social network data.
