• The "Kawachi" algorithm: a single-parameter network constructor? 

    Aldridge, Colin H
    The last decade has seen resurgence of interest in the modelling of networked phenomena. In 1999, Albert and Barabási identified "scale-free" networks as being surprisingly widespread in phenomena as wide-ranging as the ...
  • Methods for creating scale-free networks without resorting to global knowledge 

    Aldridge, Colin H
    This paper is a progress report on investigations into methods for evolving scalefree networks using less-than-global knowledge of network characteristics. The motivation for this work is the reliance on global knowledge ...
  • Playing possum with knowledge discovery: inducing population density models from spatially referenced ecological data 

    Aldridge, Colin H
    The author’s rough set based knowledge induction methodology (Aldridge 1998) and the C4.5 decision tree algorithm (Quinlan 1993) are applied to spatially referenced ecological data to develop models making use of spatial ...
  • Scale-free networks: a model for regional seismic systems? 

    Aldridge, Colin H
    Scale-free networks are a recently developed approach to modelling the interactions found in complex natural and man-made systems. Such networks exhibit a power-law distribution of link/node frequencies. Tectonic systems ...
  • A shape metric for evolving time series models 

    Whigham, Peter A; Aldridge, Colin H
    Most applications of Genetic Programming to time series modeling use a fitness measure for comparing potential solutions that treat each point in the time series independently. This non-temporal approach can lead to some ...
  • Spatio-temporal and object visualization in rugby union 

    Moore, Antoni; Whigham, Peter A; Aldridge, Colin H; Holt, Alec; Hodge, Ken
    The use of computer software as an aid to rugby, and sports coaching in general, is becoming increasingly utilized. Videoed sport is the most widely used form of raw data for sports analysis, though it is currently not ...
  • Sport and time geography: a good match? 

    Moore, Antoni; Whigham, Peter A; Holt, Alec; Aldridge, Colin H; Hodge, Ken
    This paper proposes using the rich visual “language” of Hägerstrand’s time geography to represent time-space relationships in sport, in particular within the spatial and temporal constraints of a game of rugby. Despite ...
