About

In Spring 2016, Math Horizons, a publication of the Mathematical Association of America, published an introductory article about Network Science that I wrote with Jie Shan, one of my former students. We used the techniques of network science to explore the complex social and narrative dynamics of Westeros and Essos. This fantasy world was a great playground for explaining network analysis techniques, which require combining quantitative analysis with “domain expertise.”

Inspired by the warm reception that our article received, we’ve returned to the Seven Kingdoms to provide a more authoritative analysis. This site contains the results.

Here are some links, if you want to explore the media coverage from Spring 2016.
