Social Network Analysis: Methods and Applications

Stanley Wasserman, Katherine Faust
Cambridge University Press, 25-Nov-1994 - Social Science - 825 pages

Social network analysis, which focuses on relationships among social entities, is used widely in the social and behavioral sciences, as well as in economics, marketing, and industrial engineering. Social Network Analysis: Methods and Applications reviews and discusses methods for the analysis of social networks with a focus on applications of these methods to many substantive examples. As the first book to provide a comprehensive coverage of the methodology and applications of the field, this study is both a reference book and a textbook.

Big Data over Networks

Shuguang Cui, Alfred O. Hero, III, Zhi-Quan Luo
Cambridge University Press, 14-Jan-2016 - Computers - 457 pages

Utilising both key mathematical tools and state-of-the-art research results, this text explores the principles underpinning large-scale information processing over networks and examines the crucial interaction between big data and its associated communication, social and biological networks. Written by experts in the diverse fields of machine learning, optimisation, statistics, signal processing, networking, communications, sociology and biology, this book employs two complementary approaches: first analysing how the underlying network constrains the upper-layer of collaborative big data processing, and second, examining how big data processing may boost performance in various networks. Unifying the broad scope of the book is the rigorous mathematical treatment of the subjects, which is enriched by in-depth discussion of future directions and numerous open-ended problems that conclude each chapter. Readers will be able to master the fundamental principles for dealing with big data over large systems, making it essential reading for graduate students, scientific researchers and industry practitioners alike.

Fundamentals of Predictive Text Mining

Sholom M. Weiss, Nitin Indurkhya, Tong Zhang
Springer, 07-Sep-2015 - Computers - 239 pages

This successful textbook on predictive text mining offers a unified perspective on a rapidly evolving field, integrating topics spanning the varied disciplines of data science, machine learning, databases, and computational linguistics. Serving also as a practical guide, this unique book provides helpful advice illustrated by examples and case studies.

This highly anticipated second edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded with new material on deep learning, graph models, mining social media, errors and pitfalls in big data evaluation, Twitter sentiment analysis, and dependency parsing discussion. The fully updated content also features in-depth discussions on issues of document classification, information retrieval, clustering and organizing documents, information extraction, web-based data-sourcing, and prediction and evaluation.

Topics and features: presents a comprehensive, practical and easy-to-read introduction to text mining; includes chapter summaries, useful historical and bibliographic remarks, and classroom-tested exercises for each chapter; explores the application and utility of each method, as well as the optimum techniques for specific scenarios; provides several descriptive case studies that take readers from problem description to systems deployment in the real world; describes methods that rely on basic statistical techniques, thus allowing for relevance to all languages (not just English); contains links to free downloadable industrial-quality text-mining software and other supplementary instruction material.

Fundamentals of Predictive Text Mining is an essential resource for IT professionals and managers, as well as a key text for advanced undergraduate computer science students and beginning graduate students.
