Exponential random graphs are powerful in the study of modern networks. By representing a complex global configuration through a set of tractable local features, these models seek to capture a wide variety of common network tendencies. This talk will look into the asymptotic structure of weighted exponential random graphs and formulate a quantitative theory of phase transitions. The main techniques that we use are variants of statistical physics. Based on joint work with multiple collaborators.
