gradient=NULL, minpar=-Inf, maxpar=+Inf, cov=NULL) Curve(formula,
params, map, gradient=NULL, minpar=-Inf, maxpar=+Inf,

This term can only be used for undirected bipartite networks. |
bipartite, categorical nodal attribute, undirected, binary |
b1starmix(k, attr, base=NULL,
diff=TRUE) Mixing matrix for k-stars centered on the first mode of a bipartite network: This term counts all k-stars in which the b2 nodes (called events in some contexts) are homophilous in the sense that they all share the same value of attr . However, the b1 node (in some contexts, the actor) at the center of the k-star does NOT have to have the same value as the b2 nodes; indeed, the values taken by the b1 nodes may be completely distinct from those of the b2 nodes, which allows for the use of this term in cases where there are two separate nodal attributes, one for the b1 nodes and another for the b2 nodes (in this case, however, these two attributes should be combined to form a single nodal attribute, attr). A different statistic is created for each value of attr seen in a b1 node, even if no k-stars are observed with this value. |
bipartite, categorical nodal attribute, undirected, binary |
b1twostar(b1attr, b2attr, base=NULL,
b1levels=NULL, b2levels=NULL, levels2=NULL) Two-star census for central nodes centered on the first mode of a bipartite network: This term takes two nodal attributes. Assuming that there are n_1 values of b1attr among the b1 nodes and n_2 values of b2attr among the b2 nodes, then the total number of distinct categories of two stars according to these two attributes is n_1(n_2)(n_2+1)/2. By default, this model term creates a distinct statistic counting each of these categories. |
bipartite, categorical nodal attribute, undirected, binary |
b2concurrent(by=NULL) Concurrent node count for the second mode in a bipartite network: This term adds one network statistic to the model, equal to the number of nodes in the second mode of the network with degree 2 or higher. The second mode of a bipartite network object is sometimes known as the “event” mode. Without the optional argument, this statistic is equivalent to b2mindegree(2). |
bipartite, frequently-used, undirected, binary |
b2cov(attr) b2cov(attr,
form=“sum”) Main effect of a covariate for the second mode in a bipartite network: This term adds a single network statistic for each quantitative attribute or matrix column to the model equaling the total value of attr(j) for all edges (i,j) in the network. This term may only be used with bipartite networks. For categorical attributes, see b2factor. |

b2degree(d,
by=NULL) Degree for the second mode in a bipartite network: This term adds one network statistic to the model for each element in d ; the i th such statistic equals the number of nodes of degree d[i] in the second mode of a bipartite network, i.e. with exactly d[i] edges.

bipartite, categorical nodal attribute, frequently-used, undirected, binary |
b2dsp(d) Dyadwise shared partners for dyads in the second bipartition: This term adds one network statistic to the model for each element in d ; the i th such statistic equals the number of dyads in the second bipartition with exactly d[i] shared partners. (Those shared partners, of course, must be members of the first bipartition.) This term can only be used with bipartite networks. |
bipartite, undirected, binary |
b2factor(attr, base=1, levels=-1)
b2factor(attr, base=1, levels=-1, form=“sum”) Factor attribute effect for the second mode in a bipartite network: This term adds multiple network statistics to the model, one for each of (a subset of) the unique values of the attr attribute. Each of these statistics gives the number of times a node with that attribute in the second mode of the network appears in an edge. The second mode of a bipartite network object is sometimes known as the “event” mode. |
bipartite, categorical nodal attribute, dyad-independent, frequently-used, undirected, binary, valued |
b2mindegree(d) Minimum degree for the second mode in a bipartite network: This term adds one network statistic to the model for each element in d ; the i th such statistic equals the number of nodes in the second mode of a bipartite network with at least degree d[i] .

keep=NULL, alpha=1, beta=1, byb1attr=NULL,
levels=NULL) Nodal attribute-based homophily effect for the second mode in a bipartite network: This term is introduced in Bomiriya et al (2014). With the default alpha and beta values, this term will simply be a homophily based two-star statistic. This term adds one statistic to the model unless diff is set to TRUE , in which case the term adds multiple network statistics to the model, one for each of (a subset of) the unique values of the attr attribute. |
bipartite, categorical nodal attribute, dyad-independent, frequently-used, undirected, binary |

b2star(k, attr=NULL,
levels=NULL) k-stars for the second mode in a bipartite network: This term adds one network statistic to the model for each element in k . The i th such statistic counts the number of distinct k[i] -stars whose center node is in the second mode of the network.

For a directed network, this term adds four statistics (or some subset of these four), one for each of the four distinct types of directed three-paths. If the nodes of the path are written from left to right such that the middle edge points to the right (R), then the four types are RRR, RRL, LRR, and LRL. That is, an RRR 3-trail is of the form ijkli–>j–>k–>l , and RRL 3-trail is of the form ijkli–>j–>k<–l , etc. Like in the undirected case, there is no requirement that the nodes be distinct in a directed 3-trail. However, the three edges must all be distinct. Thus, a mutual tie iji<–>j does not count as a 3-trail of the form ijiji–>j–>i<–j ; however, in the subnetwork ij ki<–>j–>k , there are two directed 3-trails, one LRR ( kjijk<–j–>i–>j ) and one RRR ( jijkk<–j–>i–>j ). |

transitive Transitive triads: This term adds one statistic to the model, equal to the number of triads in the network that are transitive. The transitive triads are those of type 120D , 030T , 120U , or 300 in the categorization of Davis and Leinhardt (1972). For details on the 16 possible triad types, see ?triad.classify in the snahttps://CRAN.R-project.org/package=snasna package. Note the distinction from the ttriple term. This term can only be used with directed networks. |

transitiveties(attr=NULL,
levels=NULL) Transitive ties: This term adds one statistic, equal to the number of ties iji–>j such that there exists a two-path from i to j . (Related to the ttriple term.) |

transitiveweights(twopath=“min”,
combine=“max”, affect=“min”) Transitive weights: This statistic implements the transitive weights statistic defined by Krivitsky (2012), Equation 13. For each of these options, the first (and the default) is more stable but also more conservative, while the second is more sensitive but more likely to induce a multimodal distribution of networks. |

triadcensus(levels) Triad census: For a directed network, this term adds one network statistic for each of an arbitrary subset of the 16 possible types of triads categorized by Davis and Leinhardt (1972) as 003, 012, 102, 021D, 021U, 021C, 111D, 111U, 030T, 030C, 201, 120D, 120U, 120C, 210, and 300 . Note that at least one category should be dropped; otherwise a linear dependency will exist among the 16 statistics, since they must sum to the total number of three-node sets. By default, the category 003 , which is the category of completely empty three-node sets, is dropped. This is considered category zero, and the others are numbered 1 through 15 in the order given above. Each statistic is the count of the corresponding triad type in the network. For details on the 16 types, see ?triad.classify in the snahttps://CRAN.R-project.org/package=snasna package, on which this code is based. For an undirected network, the triad census is over the four types defined by the number of ties (i.e., 0, 1, 2, and 3). |

triangle(attr=NULL, diff=FALSE,
levels=NULL) triangles(attr=NULL, diff=FALSE,
levels=NULL) Triangles: By default, this term adds one statistic to the model equal to the number of triangles in the network. For an undirected network, a triangle is defined to be any set {(i,j), (j,k), (k,i)} of three edges. For a directed network, a triangle is defined as any set of three edges (i{}j)(i,j) and (j{}k)(j,k) and either (k{}i)(k,i) or (k{}i)(i,k) . The former case is called a “transitive triple” and the latter is called a “cyclic triple”, so in the case of a directed network, triangle equals ttriple plus ctriple — thus at most two of these three terms can be in a model. |

triangles(attr=NULL, diff=FALSE,
levels=NULL) Triangles: By default, this term adds one statistic to the model equal to the number of triangles in the network. For an undirected network, a triangle is defined to be any set {(i,j), (j,k), (k,i)} of three edges. For a directed network, a triangle is defined as any set of three edges (i{}j)(i,j) and (j{}k)(j,k) and either (k{}i)(k,i) or (k{}i)(i,k) . The former case is called a “transitive triple” and the latter is called a “cyclic triple”, so in the case of a directed network, triangle equals ttriple plus ctriple — thus at most two of these three terms can be in a model. |

tripercent(attr=NULL, diff=FALSE,
levels=NULL) Triangle percentage: By default, this term adds one statistic to the model equal to 100 times the ratio of the number of triangles in the network to the sum of the number of triangles and the number of 2-stars not in triangles (the latter is considered a potential but incomplete triangle). In case the denominator equals zero, the statistic is defined to be zero. For the definition of triangle, see triangle . This is often called the mean correlation coefficient. This term can only be used with undirected networks; for directed networks, it is difficult to define the numerator and denominator in a consistent and meaningful way. |

ttriple(attr=NULL, diff=FALSE,
levels=NULL) Transitive triples: By default, this term adds one statistic to the model, equal to the number of transitive triples in the network, defined as a set of edges {(i{}j), j{}k), (i{}k)}{(i,j), (j,k), (i,k)} . Note that triangle equals ttriple+ctriple for a directed network, so at most two of the three terms can be in a model. |

ttriad Transitive triples: By default, this term adds one statistic to the model, equal to the number of transitive triples in the network, defined as a set of edges {(i{}j), j{}k), (i{}k)}{(i,j), (j,k), (i,k)} . Note that triangle equals ttriple+ctriple for a directed network, so at most two of the three terms can be in a model. |

twopath 2-Paths: This term adds one statistic to the model, equal to the number of 2-paths in the network. For a directed network this is defined as a pair of edges (i{}j), (j{}k)(i,j), (j,k) , where i and j must be distinct. That is, it is a directed path of length 2 from i to k via j . For directed networks a 2-path is also a mixed 2-star but the interpretation is usually different; see m2star . For undirected networks a twopath is defined as a pair of edges {i,j}, {j,k} . That is, it is an undirected path of length 2 from i to k via j , also known as a 2-star. |

Note that currently the keywords are somewhat ambiguous in their exclusivity. For example, a term marked as ‘directed’ can not be used with an undirected network, but a term not marked with either ‘directed’ or ‘undirected’ can be used with both. (rename to ‘directed-only’ ?)
