Table 2 Parameters for undirected networks

From: Testing biological network motif significance with exponential random graph models

Effect Description
Edge Baseline density
A2P Alternating k-two-paths. Used as a “control” for alternating k-triangles
AS Alternating k-stars. A positive parameter value indicates centralization based on high-degree nodes
AT Alternating k-triangles. A positive parameter value indicates network closure (triangles)
Match c Categorical matching on categorical attribute c. A positive parameter value indicates an edge preferentially forming between nodes with the same value of the categorical attribute (known as “homophily” in social network research)
