ergm-terms {ergm.count} | R Documentation |
This page describes the possible terms (and hence network statistics)
included in the ergm.count
package.
See the ergm-terms
documentation in the
ergm
package for a complete description of what ERGM terms are
and how they are used.

CMP
Conway-Maxwell-Poisson Distribution: This term adds one statistic to the model, of the form ∑_{i,j}\log(y_{i,j}!). This turns a Poisson- or a geometric-reference ERGM into a Conway-Maxwell-Poisson-reference ERGM, allowing it to represent a broad range of disperson values. In particular, combined with a Poisson-reference ERGM, a negative coefficient on this term induces underdispersion and a positive coefficient induces overdispersion. (This behavior is different from 3.1.1, when the negation of this value was used.)
Note that its current implementation may not perform well if the data are overdispersed relative to geometric.
CMB(trials, coupled = TRUE)
Conway-Maxwell-Binomial Distribution: If
couple==TRUE
, this
term adds one statistic to the model, of the form
∑_{i,j}\log(y_{i,j}!) + \log(t-y_{i,j}!). This turns a Binomial- or a
discrete-uniform-reference ERGM into a Conway-Maxwell-Binomial-reference
ERGM, allowing it to represent a broad range of disperson
values. In particular, combined with a Binomial-reference ERGM, a
negative coefficient on this term induces underdispersion and a
positive coefficient induces overdispersion.
If coupled==FALSE
the two summands above are added as their own
statistic (each with its own free parameter).
