3.3.1. Directional Force Layout Diagram: Check it here
3.3.2. Relevant Patents
After filtering, the set of 33.173 patents has been reduced to 368 patents. The filtering has followed some rules:
  • Patents with Year >= 2010 and the Number of Backward References >= 25
  • Patents with Year in [2005, 2010) and the Number of Backward References >= 60
  • Patents with Year in [1995, 2005) and the Number of Backward References >= 120
