TITLE: Theoretical Foundations for Centrality Measures

SUMMARY: Develops three new measures of actor network centrality that are analogous to those presented in Freeman, but distinct, and derived from theories of group process. The three measures – Total Effect Centrality (Degree), Immediate Effects Centrality (Closeness), and Mediative Effects Centrality (Betweenness) – are formally described and related to theoretical concepts in group process. The measures are compared using the set of unique 5-node graphs, which reveals that these new measures are complementary, and not overlapping in the dimensions of actor centrality that they measure.
