The Gozinto theorem: Using citations to determine influences on a scientific publication

  • R. Rousseau


This paper gives a mathematical technique to study influences, using citations. Taking into account both the publications that have a direct influence and those that have an indirect influence, we obtain the total influence measure on a fixed paper.
