Talk given at "The 5th Satellite on Quantifying Success", a satellite of NetSci 2018.
Citations are often used to measure the impact of documents which in turn becomes the basis for measurements of success. However, citations have to respect the arrow of time as documents only cite older documents so that citation networks are directed acyclic graphs. In this talk I will look at how this special structure imposed by time should influence the way we analyse citation networks.
