Characterization of product relations networks and identification of new product convergence opportunities
"The present day consumer products are characterized by convergence of technologies and functional evolution. Many of these products and their accessories form a web structure (product network) where products may compliment one another, act as potential substitutes to one or more products, or derive their existence from one or more products...The objectives of this study are to analyze the product network for the existence of the small world phenomenon, and validate the existence of Rank exponent power law."--Abstract, page iv.
