Analysis of Interdependence Structures:
- Direct linkages, Indirect Linkages,
- Connectivity = attribute of a network; measures
the effort (minimum number of links) needed to reach all nodes from all
- Accessibility = attribute of a node: measures
the effort needed to reach all or certain nodes from a specific node.
- Path: a set of consecutive links involving different
- Forward and Backward Linkages, Directed
Graphs (flows move in one direction only)
- "Fundamental Circuits": are circuits
(= closed paths) which do not contain other circuits
(such "loops" create redundancies in the network)

Cheney knows -- thanks to his connections;
Seattle P-I, Saturday, December 1, 2001
By STEWART M. POWELL,
SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER WASHINGTON BUREAU
WASHINGTON -- Vice President Dick Cheney may spend a
lot of time these days at "a
secure, undisclosed location" to protect the wartime
succession of America's leadership
in the event of terrorist attack. But he's never out of
the loop -- thanks to the far-flung
network of his loyalists who occupy key government
Cheney's prominent role in selecting people to
the top echelons of the Bush
administration and his ties with some Washington
figures dating back more than 30
years add up to an unprecedented network of plugged-in
officials who have at least one
thing in common: They all have a Cheney connection.
