Department's Deep Structure

Faculty Member

Yuliy Baryshnikov

What is our department good at? The question is not as simple as it seems: the research group composition changes fast, and their impact on the global scale might be smaller of larger than it seems. The goal of this project is two-fold: on one hand, to detect the intrinsic research clusters (i.e. groups of people working in close areas, talking to the same communities, publishing in the same journals) within the department. On the other hand, to see how significant these clusters are in the context of their respective fields: which are strong, which are growing.
