Abstract:

The team developed a time series analysis method to examine how a network changes over time. Provided time-stamped data is available, a timeline of a network s structure can be built and analyzed using node and network centrality measures. A set of sample data is used to illustrate that analyzing the effectiveness of past sanctions on the Iranian nuclear program can be leveraged to develop more effective sanctions in the future.
