2015-07-03 14:36:57 +0000 <saulzar_> The graph at a particular point in time has some connectivity which you could put a measure on
2015-07-03 14:38:33 +0000 <saulzar_> You could talk about a fully connected component as having fully local state (to that component)
2015-07-03 14:38:54 +0000 <joco42_> http://www.edmath.org/MATtours/discrete/concepts/cmeas.html
2015-07-03 14:39:11 +0000 <joco42_> yes
2015-07-03 14:39:36 +0000 <saulzar_> It's a directed graph
2015-07-03 14:39:54 +0000 <saulzar_> I think?
2015-07-03 14:39:58 +0000 <joco42_> yes
2015-07-03 14:41:53 +0000 <joco42_> how about graph represented as matrices and their eigenvalues? i think google ranks the web pages like that
2015-07-03 14:42:43 +0000 <joco42_> spectral graph theorem
2015-07-03 14:43:07 +0000 <joco42_> that should apply to directed graphs too
2015-07-03 14:44:16 +0000 <joco42_> https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spectral_graph_theory
2015-07-03 14:44:48 +0000 <saulzar_> Yeah, the pagerank thing could be a good measure
2015-07-03 14:44:52 +0000 <saulzar_> I think
2015-07-03 14:44:54 +0000 <joco42_> this is a pretty trippy topic, i remember it was used to characterize fullerenes and carbon nanotubes
2015-07-03 14:45:05 +0000 <joco42_> too
2015-07-03 14:45:22 +0000 <saulzar_> Somewhat a measure of the treeness
2015-07-03 14:45:43 +0000 <joco42_> never really understood it

2015-07-03 14:46:07 +0000 <joco42_> might be good to ask a specialist about this
2015-07-03 14:46:18 +0000 <saulzar_> I've always felt software metrics are primarily useless :)
2015-07-03 14:46:25 +0000 <joco42_> graph theory + frp
2015-07-03 14:46:54 +0000 <saulzar_> I think the pagerank thing could be interesting, perhaps
2015-07-03 14:46:55 +0000 <joco42_> yes they are in oop imho, but frp is pretty mathematical
2015-07-03 14:47:02 +0000chaptastic(~textual@c-24-125-71-94.hsd1.ga.comcast.net)
2015-07-03 14:47:08 +0000 <joco42_> its a set of equations
2015-07-03 14:47:29 +0000 <joco42_> a differential equation system
2015-07-03 14:48:22 +0000 <joco42_> http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CjEDmJMLEGE the last few minutes
2015-07-03 14:48:43 +0000 <joco42_> of course the equations change in dynamic systems

2015-07-03 14:52:58 +0000 <saulzar_> Ha, wow
2015-07-03 14:55:32 +0000 <joco42_> yes, i am saying that myself!
2015-07-03 14:55:36 +0000 <joco42_> wow
2015-07-03 14:56:11 +0000 <joco42_> that is a fully self contained talk btw, from 0 to 100
