Abstract

In this research project we aim to study new statistical inference approaches for networks' analysis. In particular we focus on networks that exhibit community structure, that is, the nodes are organized into groups with similar connection patterns. We are interested in developing new statistical approaches applied to the study of a single network as well as for random samples of networks.
