volumes of IMaGe publications now have a
persistent url in Deep Blue, the permanent electronic archive at The
University of Michigan Library. Look at the Deep Blue IMaGe

interested in online archiving of this sort might be interested in

on the IMaGe home page in Deep Blue that there is a button near the top
that says "Authors." A click on that will bring up a list that
includes all IMaGe authors of books, all IMaGe authors who have given
permission to have their individual works archived under their own
names in Deep Blue, and all co-authors of such authors (an
indirect generation) also in Deep Blue.
In this note, Java applets are used to portray various relations among
IMaGe authors and others as well as to exhibit the structure of IMaGe
publications. The applet in Figure 1 shows the general
structure of IMaGe publications. Successive figures, Figures 2,
3, 4, and 5, exhibit detail within various publication series.
Pull the root (in red) around and rearrange author or other groupings
to look for pattern. Hit the scramble button and see where the
labels settle in an equilibrium position.

ring in Figure 4 represents author names from the first decade
(1990-1999) of publication. The outer ring represents author
from the second decade (2000-present) of publication. The
ring represents author names publishing in both decades, as a visual
bridge from one decade to the next.

all IMaGe authors have yet indicated that they wish to be directly
included in Deep Blue (such indication is a prerequisite to
inclusion). If all were to so indicate, then the applets above
would enlarge substantially.
applet in Figure 6 represents the research collaboration graph showing
IMaGe authors in Deep Blue who have co-authors in Deep Blue that are
NOT also IMaGe authors. While the applets in Figures 1-5
illustrate collaboration opportunities within the shell of IMaGe, the
applet in Figure 6 suggests IMaGe's existing collaboration
opportunities within the broader, but still limited, Deep Blue context
(over 40,000 entries in Deep Blue at the time of the writing of this

One might extend the process to include all entries in d-space or other
broader collaboration environments. J. Grossman has, for many
elaborate research in mathematics involving
graph-theoretic analyses of the "Erdös" number of an author
represents research collaboration. He has captured the
information in a wide variety of manners, including graphically.
