|Title:||A mathematical extension of the idea of bibliographic coupling and its applications|
|Authors:||Sen, Subir K|
Gan, Shymal K
|Abstract:||The idea behind bibliographic coupling was put forward independently by Fano and by Kessler. The credibility and applicability of the idea have however been questioned. In the present paper the idea has been extended and mathematically formalized. A measure of the strength of coupling vis-a-vis clustering has been proposed. Use of coupling for assessing cognitive scatter and progression of cognitive linkage has also been discussed. The limitations as well as usefulness of the principle have been critically analyzed.|
