Network actors and their connections are subject to contextual settings. This contextual information impacts centrality calculations.
Make sure to check out
nctx - the programming library for Networks in ConTeXt which was created and used for the paper! The library offers functionality to analyze attributed networks. Special emphasis lies on the inspection of the interrelation between structural and contextual data.
What's unique about this library is that it gives the network researcher the ability to enforce contextual constraints via user-defined functions during the execution of classical network analysis algorithms. Using the initial release of
nctx, the researcher can influence shortest path discovery and shortest path-based centrality metrics.
