Abstract: We illustrate the potential of the bwHPC for sociological research. After briefly explaining why modern sociological research requires more computational time, we outline a recently developed computationally intense statistical model for the analysisof relational data. We close by summarizing an empirical study in which we applied this model to answer a substantive question and greatly benefited from the bwHPC with regard to computation time.
