CECAN Webinar: Trophic Analysis of Directed Networks
Tuesday 22nd September 2020, 13:00 - 14:00 BST
Presenter: Professor Robert MacKay, University of Warwick
You are warmly invited to join us for the following CECAN Webinar...
Directed networks are used in many domains. Particularly relevant examples to evaluation and appraisal are systems maps and influence maps. Trophic analysis indicates how far up or downstream each node is and computes a quantity called trophic incoherence, but perhaps better called circularity, which indicates the extent to which the network fails to line up with each node feeding to nodes at the next level. Robert will suggest incorporating trophic analysis into systems mapping, and present relations of trophic incoherence with some other network properties, and end with an application of incomplete pairwise comparison to football leagues.
