Abstract: In this paper, we discuss the dynamics of friendship network formation by the analysis of real networks and simulations. First, we survey real networks that comprise students in a graduate school and developed within two months of admission. From the results, we find that reciprocity and sibling bias have a considerable effect on the creation of a friendship network. Second, we perform computer simulations to construct a friendship network that is similar to a real network by using these biases. Because we can construct a similar friendship network only by using these biases, we believe that the simulation can be used as a model for representing real friendship networks.
