Remarks

In this talk I will discuss some possibilities of using complex networks in history, literature and compared mythology. The talk is based on my experience and that of my colleagues in trying to see how far we can go with these ideas and what the limitations are. Prof. Dr. Silvio Dahmen studied theoretical physics in Sao Carlos (Brazil) and Bonn. After a postdoctoral fellowship at Yale University, he became an associate professor in Porto Alegre (Brazil) in 2002. He is currently visiting the TU Berlin’s history of science department thanks to a fellowship from the Alexander-von-Humboldt Foundation. Recent publications include: (i) Community Detection in the Network of German Princes of 1225, in: Complex Networks VIII, pp. 193-200, Springer, 2017. (ii) Temporal Network Analysis of Literary Texts, in: Advances in Complex Systems 19 (2016), 1650005. (iii) Die Mathematik der Epen: Die Netze der Helden und Täter. Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, 04.11.2015.
