[statnet_help] Reference distribution h(x) in valued ERGM

Dear Statnet Community,

I am working on a weighted network modeling using valued-ERGM in my
research, and the determination of the choice of reference distribution

I know there are choices such as Poisson distribution, Geometric
distribution (in ergm.count) and also Bernoulli, uniform, discrete uniform
and standard normal distribution (in ergm). Is there any mathematical form
of h(y) for each distribution? As the network structure y is the variable
in h(y) function, how does the distribution of link strength determine h(y)?

Thank you so much for your help in advance!
