Balance theory explains the forces behind the structure of social systems, which are commonly modeled as static undirected signed networks. We expand this modeling approach to incorporate directionality of edges, and consider three levels of analysis: triads, subgroups, and the whole network.

For subgroup-level balance, we propose measures of cohesiveness (intra-grouparXiv:2005.09925v2 fatcat:l47vfxkyrvezbi2xes7zuc2vpe
