Definitions for "Network analysis"
Technique used to conduct analyses on a set of points (nodes) and lines that are connected to each other.
Breaking down a complex project into component requirements and recording these in a diagrammatic form which incorporates a critical time scale, so that planning and control can be effected in the most expedient manner.
Basic concepts in network analysis
The derivation of a network's electrical characteristics (input and output impedance, forward and reverse transfer characteristics, transient response, etc.) through its configuration, component values and response to driving signals.
The process of creating a model of the transfer or impedance characteristics of a linear network through stimulus-response testing over the frequency range of interest.
The process of examining the structure of the relationships among individuals and/or organizations in a network.
