Knowledge Discovery from Citation Networks
—Knowledge discovery from scientific articles has received increasing attentions recently since huge repositories are made available by the development of the Internet and digital databases. In a corpus of scientific articles such as a digital library, documents are connected by citations and one document plays two different roles in the corpus: document itself and a citation of other documents. In the existing topic models, little effort is made to differentiate these two roles. We believe that the topic distributions of these two roles are different and related in a certain way. In this paper we propose a Bernoulli Process Topic (BPT) model which models the corpus at two levels: document level and citation level. In the BPT model, each document has two different representations in the latent topic space associated with its roles. Moreover, the multilevel hierarchical structure of the citation network is captured by a generative process involving a Bernoulli process. The distribut...
