Un Opérateur De Densification D’un Graphe Le Graphe Des Parentés
Jean-Leon Beauvois and Gerard Lopez

We propound a formal improvement of the psycho-mathematical theory of structural balance [2,4,5]. Two vertices of a two-valued graph G (+/-) make a duo if they have the same relation with every common neighbour. Two vertices of a graph G make a disjunct if they have opposed relations with every common neighbour. We weaken these notions to define a new graph called the « kinship-graph ». This graph is of the same kind of G. A full-edge represents a duo, a dotted-edge represents a disjunct. We analyse some properties of this graph and we show its interest to enlarge simple structures given by social psychologists.
