R-Netters:

for (partial sentimental reasons) I am at the the moment working on some old data of mine (actually collected 40 years ago this year for my thesis) covering development of of social networks in small groups over time. These data consists of signed and directed graphs.

Apart from the programs I write myself, I am looking for R functions for computing what at that time was called "Structural Balance", mainly to check on my own programs, where the results are almost to good to be true. I want to limit myself to cycles (semicycles?) of length two and three.

I am aware of the "network" package as well as the "sna" which do not seem to quite cover what I need. On the other hand, the terminology may have changed since I looked into the field 40 years ago. I am also aware of the Pajek program and the corresponding book by Nooy, Mrvrar, and Batagelj.

Any other suggestions or pointers?

Tom
