Author path error RRS feed

  • Question

  • The visualization of author paths does not always show the shortest path. It is possible to find author A to B and B to C links separately that ate shorter in total length than those shown for author A to C links. Why is this? I would give a specific example, but Microsoft Academic Search is hanging at the moment.

    Jonathan P. Bowen <-> Robin J. Wilson <-> Paul Erdos
