Table 1 Catalog of network process properties that determine the way an entity uses the network structure. The first two properties, transmission mechanism and trajectory type, were proposed by Borgatti (2005)

From: Towards a process-driven network analysis

Dimension Possible values
Transmission mechanism (Borgatti 2005) transfer
  serial duplication
  parallel duplication
Trajectory type (Borgatti 2005) shortest paths
  paths
  trails
  walks
Target to reach same target for all entities
  individual targets
  no target
Routing mechanism local routing by node
  local routing by process
  global routing
Adopting forwarding
  adoption: simple contagion
  adoption: complex contagion
Interaction network and process no interaction
  process shapes network
Place of process on nodes
  on edges
