Title: An analytical model to interpret continuous expansion of universe of subjects
Authors: Dutta, Bidyarthi
Sen, B.K.
Issue Date: Mar-2011
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: Tries to find the pattern of change of keywords of an arbitrary science subject with its age. The mode of temporal evolution of a subject is formulated on the basis of some fundamental assumptions. It has been mathematically derived that the number of keywords of a subject will always tend to attain a saturation value with the age of the subject. When a subject gets overloaded with keywords, then it tries to share the same with some peripheral subject areas and consequently new subjects are formed.
