Data Science Glossary

adjacency matrix Consider a network with nodes and links between nodes. We let xij = 1 if node i is linked to node j and let xij = 0 otherwise. Undirected networks yield symmetric matrices. Directed networks yield asymmetric matrices.

agent Also called an “artificial agent.” A program that automatically performs duties for a computer user or a program that behaves like a person within a limited domain of operation.

agent-based modeling Simulation method that can build on discrete event simulation. In agent-based modeling of networks, we acknowledge the fact that individual nodes may differ from one another in roles, motives, behavior, or interactions. Agent-based techniques provide a facility for modeling networks that change ...
