Dear Yaxin,

It should be in the help for the references:

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 h(y).

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!
