September 11 Terrorists Network

Terrorist network linked to the tragic events of September 11, 2001

Terrorist network linked to the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Full names of vertices are stored in "FullName" annotation. The vertex annotation "Group" tells which flight a hijacker was on, or "Other" in case of associates of highjackers that were not on any of the flights. The strength of ties is divided into "Dormant", "Moderate", and "Strong", and is stored in the edge annotation "Strength".

Examples

Basic Examples

Retrieve the graph:

In[1]:=
ResourceData["September 11 Terrorists Network"]
Out[1]=

Summary properties:

In[2]:=
ResourceData["September 11 Terrorists Network", All]["Summary"]
Out[2]=

Basic Applications

Pick the three most involved members of the network:

In[3]:=
g = ResourceData["September 11 Terrorists Network"];
In[4]:=
vertices = VertexList[g];
In[5]:=
names = MaximalBy[vertices, VertexDegree[g, #] &, 3]
Out[5]=

Find their full name and flight:

In[6]:=
Grid[{AnnotationValue[{g, #}, "FullName"], 
    AnnotationValue[{g, #}, "Group"]} & /@ names, Sequence[
 Frame -> All, Alignment -> Left, Background -> LightBlue]]
Out[6]=

Highlight the most involved members in the network:

In[7]:=
HighlightGraph[g, names, PlotTheme -> "Web"]
Out[7]=
