Graph Theory 101 with corruption cases in Spain


Data about all corruption cases in Spain can be modeled as a graph to unveil the networks of “friends” that are always charged together. We will use this data to understand different concepts from Graph Theory and Social Network Analysis, learn to work with these structures using R, and try to determine to what extent those are isolated cases.

R, the igraph package, and an Internet connection to download the data.
