Abstract
The notion of social roles is a centerpiece of most sociological theoretical considerations. Regular equivalences arise as a result of an attempt to capture the sociological notion of a relational or structural role. Regular equivalences were introduced by White and Reitz in [28] as the least restrictive among the most commonly used definitions of the equivalence in social network analysis. In recent years, with development of fuzzy social network theory, regular fuzzy equivalences are widely explored. In this paper we consider a generalization of this notion to a bipartite case. We define a pair of regular fuzzy equivalences on a two-mode social network and we provide an algorithm for computing the greatest pair of regular fuzzy equivalences.
