A Distance Measure for the Analysis of
Polar Opinion Dynamics in Social Networks

This page is dedicated to SND (Social Network Distance) [1][2] — a distance measure designed for the comparison of snapshots of a social network containing polar (competing) opinions. It measures how "likely" one polar opinion distribution over a social network has evolved into another opinion distribution with respect to a given opinion dynamics model.
