Examples of dyad in the following topics:

 Note also that both dyads form the same generic interval (sixth).
 Note also that the two dyads are different generic intervals.

 A dyad is a pair of pitches sounding together (in other words, a twonote chord).
 Since a dyad is defined by the interval between the two pitches, dyads are often simply called intervals.
 Memorizing the intervals between solfège pairs can help speed along your analysis of dyads as they appear in music.
 Likewise, the intervals marked off by those inverted dyads are said to be inversions of each other.
 Three relationships exhibited by these two dyads hold for all interval inversions.

 The approaches we've examined to this point start with the dyad, and see if this kind of tight structure can be extended outward.
 Some might prefer, however, to start with the entire network as their frame of reference, rather than the dyad.

 The smallest "cliques" are composed of two actors: the dyad.
 But dyads can be "extended" to become more and more inclusive  forming strong or closely connected regions in graphs.
 A number of approaches to finding groups in graphs can be developed by extending the closecoupling of dyads to larger structures.

 One approach is to focus on the dyads, and ask what proportion of pairs have a reciprocated tie between them?
 The method just described is called the dyad method in Network>Cohesion>Reciprocity.
 We've specified the "hybrid" method (the default) which is the same as the dyad approach.

 Dyads and triads are the smallest social groups.
 Social interaction in a dyad is typically more intense than in larger groups because neither member shares the other's attention with anyone else.
 A triad is more stable than a dyad because one member can act as a mediator should the relationship between the other two become strained.

 The dyads, triads, and egocentered neighborhoods that we examined earlier can all be thought of as substructures.
 Many of the approaches to understanding the structure of a network emphasize how dense connections are builtup from simpler dyads and triads to more extended dense clusters such as "cliques."
 We can also se that there is one case (#6) that is not a member of any subgroup (other than a dyad).
 If you look closely, you will see that dyads and triads are the most common subgraphs here  and despite the substantial connectivity of the graph, tight groupings larger than this seem to be few.

 Individuals are embedded (usually simultaneously) in dyads, triads, facetoface local groups of neighbors, and larger organizational and categorical social structures.

 The smallest social structure in which an individual can be embedded is a dyad (that is, a pair of actors).
 If we are considering a directed relation (A might like B, but B might not like A), there are three kinds of dyads (no tie, one likes the other but not vice versa, or both like the other).

 A clique extends the dyad by adding to it members who are tied to all of the members in the group.
