# Multigraphs and Social Network Analysis

I am interested about Social Network Analysis (SNA) with multiple links between pairs of nodes. I'm not aware of works in this area, and I am trying to find any reference in these regards.

In particular, is there also something about SNA with negative edges, possibly multigraphs?

My guess is that multigraphs are interpreted as edge-weighted networks. –  Douglas S. Stones Dec 19 '12 at 4:07

To comment a bit on D.S. Stones' comment: I think that negative edges are very natural if you think of your graphs as oriented. In fact, this kind of objects are the very fundament of so-called cognitive maps, which have been around for quite a while now - although I cannot really judge how popular they still are, nowadays. http://sipi.usc.edu/~kosko/FCM.pdf
