Mythological Networks

Salle de séminaire du groupe de Physique Statistique

We apply statistical mechanical tools to analyse the networks underlying three mythological narratives with a view to identifying common and distinguishing quantitative features. Two of these narratives are mostly believed by antiquarians to be partly historically based while the third, an Irish epic, is often considered to be fictional. We use network analysis in an attempt to discriminate real from imaginary social networks and place mythological narratives on the spectrum between them.
