The genetic programming collaboration network and its communities

  title={The genetic programming collaboration network and its communities},
  author={Leslie Luthi and Marco Tomassini and Mario Giacobini and William B. Langdon},
  booktitle={GECCO '07},
Useful information about scientific collaboration structures and patterns can be inferred from computer databases of published papers. The genetic programming bibliography is the most complete reference of papers on GP. In addition to locating publications, it contains coauthor and coeditor relationships from which a more complete picture of the field emerges. We treat these relationships as undirected small world graphs whose study reveals the community structure of the GP collaborative social… 
Empirical analysis of the evolution of a scientific collaboration network
We present an analysis of the temporal evolution of a scientific coauthorship network, the genetic programming network. We find evidence that the network grows according to preferential attachment,
Analysis of Scientist Collaboration Network Based on the Journal of “Statistical Research”
The theories, thoughts and methods of complex network bring vitality and vigor to the science of science. The collaboration network is one of significant subjects. In recent years, some researchers

metrics, degree, density, and proximity prestige, were applied to the detection of networks of high activity and presence of important actors with respect to email transactions. Quantitative analysis
Community evolution in a scientific collaboration network
The distribution of lifespan in the network of genetic programming researchers is shown to be modeled as an exponential-law, a phenomenon yet to be explored in other empirical networks, and the parameter of minimum community size can significantly affect how communities grow over time.
Discovery of email communication networks from the Enron corpus with a genetic algorithm using social network analysis
This work presents a genetic algorithm (GA) approach to social network analysis (SNA) using the Enron corpus, which showed that density and proximity prestige isolated networks involving key actors to a greater extent than degree.
Analysis of Co-authorship Networks
This chapter presents a comprehensive overview of research studies focused on empirical analysis of co-authorship networks and identifies typical structural and evolutionary characteristics ofCo-Authorship networks by an aggregate analysis of examined studies.
Influence Analysis of Real Options Collaboration Network
Real Options Theory arose as an alternative to valuate flexibilities entrenched in projects and has acquired popularity since the end of the twentieth century. Through bibliometric methods and graph
A study of NK landscapes' basins and local optima networks
This work exhaustively extracts inherent networks of combinatorial fitness landscapes by adapting the notion of inherent networks proposed for energy surfaces by using the well-known family of $NK$ landscapes as an example.

La teoría de opciones reales surgió como una alternativa para valorar las flexibilidades arraigadas en proyectos y ha adquirido popularidad desde finales del siglo xx. A través de métodos


The structure of the genetic programming collaboration network
The genetic programming bibliography aims to be the most complete reference of papers on genetic programming and contains coauthor and coeditor relationships which have not previously been studied.

Using computer databases of scientific papers in physics, biomedical research, and computer science, a network of collaboration between scientists in each of these disciplines is constructed, and a number of measures of centrality and connectedness in the same networks are studied.

It is argued that simple networks such as these cannot capture variation in the strength of collaborative ties and proposed a measure of collaboration strength based on the number of papers coauthored by pairs of scientists, and thenumber of other scientists with whom they coauthored those papers.
The Complex Network of Evolutionary Computation Authors: an Initial Study
The network of authors of evolutionary computation papers found in a major bibliographic database is explored, its macroscopic properties are examined, and it is found that the EC co-authorship network yields results in the same ballpark as other networks, but exhibits some distinctive patterns in terms of internal cohesion.

An algorithm is described which gives excellent results when tested on both computer-generated and real-world networks and is much faster, typically thousands of times faster, than previous algorithms.

Developments in this field are reviewed, including such concepts as the small-world effect, degree distributions, clustering, network correlations, random graph models, models of network growth and preferential attachment, and dynamical processes taking place on networks.
The evolution of the mathematical research collaboration graph
Some properties of the research collaboration graph for mathematicians, its evolution over time, and some random models that might produce graphs of this sort are discussed.
The complex network of EC authors
An understanding of the structure of the network and what makes some nodes stand out goes beyond mere curiosity to give us some insight on the deep workings of science, what makes an author popular, or some co-authors preferred over others.
