The exponential random graph model (ERGM) is a central object in the study of clustering properties in social networks as well as canonical ensembles in statistical physics. It is a version of the well known Erd˝os-R´enyi graphs, obtained by tilting according to the subgraph counting Hamiltonian. Despite its importance in the theory of random graphs, lots of fundamental questions have...
