Interactive Tool to Explore
the Genetic Programming Collaboration Network
These are very brief notes for the
co authorship graphs.
The underlying network is described in
When the cursor is moved across one of the coauthorship graphs
your browser may display a "tool tip"
as it passes over each author node.
It is left pretty much up to the browser how
(if at all) it does this.
Firefox can display a small yellow box
as it passes over the red node for a genetic programming person.
Firefox also displays a URL for each red dot
(node in the collaboration small world network).
Like the tool tip,
the URL includes the author's name
and the number of entries they have in the GP bibliography.
Also the blue
(created by the search function) also give author names (and their co-authors,
and their co-co-authors, etc., etc.).
Find authors search
The text field next to "Find authors" works on each key stroke.
This means as you type more of a GP person's name,
the number of people that matches reduces as you enter each letter.
However with some browsers (e.g. Firefox)
if you paste a complete name into the field
this does not count as a keystroke and nothing happens,
until you tell the input field you have finished with it.
E.g. by tabbing to the next field
or clicking the mouse elsewhere in the page.
manually enter a character after the paste operation.
E.g. add a space after the person's name.
23 Nov 2012 - Chrome not Compatible with Search Feature Krzysztof Krawiec reported that
Chrome Version 23.0.1271.64 on MacOs 10.8.2
does not support the "find authors" search.
It works fine on other browsers.
The problem appears to be confined to Google Chrome v8 with Apple
Chrome reports a maximum stack exceeded exception for
which means none of the data from
are loaded and so the author search does not find anyone.
The problem is now cured but in case the work around is useful in
I am leaving the following text.
start Google Chrome with an increased stack size limit
/Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --js-flags="--stack-size 2048"
My thanks to Kiran Lakhotia for diagnosing the problem
and providing this workaround.
