1. Graph Theory

This problem is regarding graph theory
I am doing my final year research based on graph theory.
First part of research is making network and sociomatrics for the users in the dataset.
In order to do that need to know how to assign weight for the edges.

I have few variables namely
1. Call count
2. call charge
3. Call duration

I want to know how do decide the weight of the edge based on these variables.
Does call count can be taken as a weight of the edge

Thank you

Hey shanaka.

You will either have to use some prior data to make guesses or use some sort of mathematical model.

can i know what is the mean by weight of edge

4. Re: Graph Theory

It is a number that you assign to a particular edge.

You will have to probably decide what sort of information you are trying to figure out and then use that to interpret what the weights are.

You haven't really given us a lot to go on.

I am going to build the network graph of customers of the telco company. so that i have the variables namely
1. Call count
2. call charge
3. Call duration

for the particular 2 persons
for example if i and u have a connection
then
1. call count means how many calls between us within week
2. call duration means total call time between us
3.and callcharge mean total charge for the calls between us

So now i want to use one of the variable as the weight of the edge
I though as use call count as a edge weight. want to know whether it is true or false

Thank you
