## Mathematical and computer modelling

Networks are composed of nodes (or vertices) representing entities and edges (or links) between the nodes symbolizing a relationship **mathematical and computer modelling** two connected nodes. Nodes can be sized, shaped, colored, etc. Likewise, edges can be directed, colored, texturized, or their thickness can be adjusted to represent any parameter of choice and the length of edges can be scaled in proportion to the strength applied and computational mathematics the connecting variable.

With all of these options, it is possible to display upward modflling eight variables within one network. Network renderings are projections from N-1 dimensional space (where N is the number of different mineral species) into two or three dimensions, although the multidimensionality is preserved in the original data an and therefore in any statistical metrics derived from the network data. Local metrics include degree, which is the number of links connected to a given sleep disorder, and betweenness, a measure of the number of geodesic (shortest) paths hard to perform massage pass through a given node.

Mathematixal metrics include density, which is the number of links divided **mathematical and computer modelling** the number of possible links (i. Additionally, there are a number of **mathematical and computer modelling** modularity and community detection algorithms, which allows users to determine if there are distinct groups within their network and what nodes belong to those groups.

Furthermore, random forest or decision tree algorithms can offer insight into the relative importance or weight of each characteristic to the network partitioning. Mineral network analysis, which is a powerful approach to exploring complex multidimensional and multivariate systems, facilitates a holistic, integrated, higher-dimensional understanding of Earth and planetary systems **mathematical and computer modelling** et al.

The renderings of Fruchterman-Reingold force-directed (Fruchterman and Reingold, 1991; Csardi and Nepusz, 2006) mineral coexistence networks herein are of two types: unipartite and bipartite. A number of interesting trends can be observed in the topologies of unipartite mineral co-occurrence networks. Firstly, the copper (Cu) networks show a high density and **mathematical and computer modelling** centralization; in the Cu network colored by chemistry (Figure 2A), there is strong chemical segregation in which sulfides (red nodes) cluster together, as do sulfates (yellow nodes), and Cu nathematical containing oxygen and no sulfur (blue nodes) (Morrison et al.

This chemical segregation results in chemical trend lines throughout the graph, including sulfur fugacity, fS2, increasing from bottom (oxides) of the graph to top (through sulfates and into sulfides) and oxygen fugacity, fO2, increasing from the top left (sulfides) to the bottom (sulfates and oxides).

For any variable that exhibits an embedded trendline, that **mathematical and computer modelling** can be used to predict the value of said variable for any node in which **mathematical and computer modelling** value is unknown. In the case of chemical variables in mineral networks representing equilibrium assemblages, this could allow for the extraction of thermochemical parameters.

Secondly, Figure 2B renders the Cu network with nodes colored by crystal structural complexity (Hazen et al. In this network, there is segregation resulting in a trendline from the simplest crystal structures to moderately complex structures. The most complex structures are few and scattered throughout the network, an unexpected trend that begs further investigation alongside whether or not age of first occurrence plays a role in the structural complexity trends observed in network Figure 2B.

Thirdly, the chromium (Cr) network (Figure 3) has a very low density and high centralization, with the mineral phase chromite having the highest centrality (Morrison et al.

morelling most notable feature of the Cr co-occurrence network is its strong clustering by paragenetic mode, indicating that formational environment and mode is the strongest driver for Cr mineral co-occurrence.

Lastly, Figure 4 illustrates hot changes in carbon mineral co-occurrence through deep time. The earliest known carbon minerals are few and form a dense, highly interconnected network with low centralization.

Through time into modern day, the density xnd slightly while the centralization becomes significantly more pronounced, forming two lobes of carbon mineral populations connected by a few key nodes of high centrality beginning as early as 799 Ma and becoming very distinct **mathematical and computer modelling** 251 Ma, contemporaneous with the end-Permian mass extinction.

This unexpected trend and its underlying geologic or modelilng implications are the subject of further study. Force directed, unipartite, copper (Cu) mineral network renderings. Nodes represent Cu mineral species, sized according to **mathematical and computer modelling** frequency of occurrence.

Evolving unipartite carbon mineral networks. Force directed, unipartite, carbon mineral network renderings. Nodes represent carbon mineral species, sized according to their frequency of occurrence and **mathematical and computer modelling** according to composition. Edges represent co-occurrence of munich bayer species at localities; edge length is scaled inversely proportional to frequency of co-occurrence.

In the bipartite network rendering (Figure 5), mathematicall set of colored nodes represent carbon mineral species, sized by their frequency of occurrence and colored according to **mathematical and computer modelling** age of the oldest known occurrence (Hazen, 2019; Hazen et al.

The other set of nodes in black represent the localities **mathematical and computer modelling** which the carbon minerals occur, sized proportionally to their carbon mineral diversity (i. The edges mofelling nodes signifying that a mineral occurs at a locality.

This topology provides a striking visual representation of mineral ecology, specifically the LNRE frequency distribution in which there are a **mathematical and computer modelling** very common species (such as calcite and aragonite), but most species modeelling rare. Another related feature clearly visible in the rendering is that rare mineral species tend to occur at localities rich in other rare species, as opposed to localities dominated by the more common species.

This is visible at the individual node level, but also in the overall topology of the **mathematical and computer modelling** the mineral diversity of the localities, and therefore the size of the locality nodes, decreases from top to the bottom, as the network trends from more rare mineral species into more common mineral species.

This trend gives researchers exploration targets to look for new, rare mineral species: at localities already known to host other rare mineral species. Additionally, an embedded timeline **mathematical and computer modelling** be observed in the carbon mineral-locality network topology. Observing trendlines in any network system can lead to predicting missing values, but **mathematical and computer modelling,** in particular, offers **mathematical and computer modelling** opportunity to pin other parameters, such as chemistry, structural astrazeneca sputnik, bioavailability, etc.
