statnet is a suite of software packages for statistical network analysis. The packages
implement recent advances in network modeling based on exponential-family random graph
models (ERGM). The components of the package provide a comprehensive framework for
ERGM-based network modeling, including tools for model estimation, model evaluation,
model-based network simulation, and network visualization. This broad functionality
is powered by a central Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm. The coding is optimized
for speed and robustness.
