missSBM: Handling missing data in Stochastic Block Models

Travis build status AppVeyor build status Coverage status CRAN_Status_Badge

When a network is partially observed (here, NAs in the adjacency matrix rather than 1 or 0 due to missing information between node pairs), it is possible to account for the underlying process that generates those NAs. ‘missSBM’ adjusts the popular stochastic block model from network data sampled under various missing data conditions, as described in Tabouy, Barbillon and Chiquet (2019) 10.1080/01621459.2018.1562934.
