Inference for Graphs and Networks 3 on their analysis. In this chapter, we focus on introducing the subject from first principles and framing key inferential questions. We begin with a dis- cussion of relational data in Section 1.2, and introduce notation to make the connection to networks precise. We discuss model specification and infer- ence in Section 1.3, by way of concrete definitions and examples. We intro- duce new ideas for detecting network structure in Section 1.4, and apply them to data analysis by way of formal testing procedures. In Section 1.5 we discuss open problems and future challenges for large-scale network infer- ence in the key areas of model elicitation, approximate fitting procedures, and issues of data sampling. In a concluding appendix we provide a more thorough introduction to the current literature, highlighting contributions to the field from statistics as well as a variety of other disciplines.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
