Previous chapters focused on the models of static networks, which consider a relational network at a given point in time. However, real-world social networks are dynamic in nature; for example, friends of friends become friends. Social network research has, in recent years, paid increasing attention to dynamic and longitudinal network analysis in order to understand network evolution, belief formation, friendship formation, and so on. This chapter focuses mainly on the dynamics and evolutional patterns of social networks. The chapter introduces real-world applications and reviews major theories and models of dynamic network mining.
