    Description Course Description:
    Facebook and Xing are two well-known examples of social networks. However, the importance of relationships is not restricted to online relationships and, similarly, the term social networks includes various applications apart from online social networks: Examples range from ancient marriage networks to R&D collaborations between firms. The analysis of social networks has become one of the liveliest fields of research in economics, as well as in other social sciences. This course gives an introduction into this field and thereby puts emphasis on economic models of network formation.
    Outline
    1. Introduction to social networks: motivation, basic definitions, examples
    2. Ideas from social network analysis: importance of social networks, centrality, patterns of social networks
    3. Models of strategic network formation: set-up, examples, properties
    4. Network formation and games: stability versus efficiency
    5. Outlook: behavior on networks
    Training objectives Students are supposed to…
    a) learn how to (mathematically) describe and analyze social networks,
    b) understand a few of the most important ideas developed in network science, and
    c) learn how to analyze microeconomic models of network formation.
