So what we will do here, is we will start looking at some of the structural graph metrics that are going to give us a little bit more insight into the importance of different parts of the Hadith Narrator Graph. We will use the Neuler Graph Data Science playground to do that. Neuler is a so-called GraphApp that you can easily install into your Neo4j Desktop environment. You can download and install it, and learn more about it here.
Once installed, we will run a few easy algo's.
Pagerank centrality of the Scholars
Once of the advantages of the
AGGREGATED_HADITH_CHAIN relationship, is that we now have a mono-partite, weighted subgraph that is very suitable for understanding which Scholars are actually more interesting than others - this is a great use case for the Pagerank algorithm. Here's how we configure it:
