CECAN Webinar - Trophic Analysis of Directed Networks

CECAN Webinar


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...


Webinar Overview: 

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.
