C12: Citation networks (2)

In this citation map, each circle corresponds to an important paper represented by the last name of first author and year of publication. The size of circles correspond to the number of times the paper has been cited. As can be seen, the colors of the map, assigned automatically, show different clusters of papers that have cited each other frequently.
