Abstract:

In this paper the dynamics of signed networks is studied. Initially, we show how factions can be formed in a signed network and demonstrate that the factions formed in a weakly balanced network are consistent with what is expected. Later, we shift our focus to constructing signed networks that result in factions of known structure. In the end, we consider the case in which a group of influencer nodes manipulate their local connections in the network in order to steer to nodes to form any arbitrary faction structure. This allows the definition of a novel centrality measure for sets of nodes in a signed network.
