Metagraph Transformations

Part of the Integrated Series in Information Systems book series (ISIS, volume 15)


So far, we have considered a variety of features of a metagraph, where these features are specified in terms of the metagraph structure as given. However, there are many situations where it may be desirable to transform the given structure of a metagraph into another form that more effectively discloses certain structural features and/or facilitates certain analyses. In this chapter, we explore the transformation of a metagraph from one form to another that provides a different view of the system and/or relationships described by the metagraph.
