Statistical analysis, visualization and simulation of diffusion and contagion processes on networks. The package implements algorithms for calculating stats such as innovation threshold levels, infectiousness (contagion) and susceptibility, and hazard rates as presented in Burt (1987), Valente (1995), and Myers (2000) (among others).
