Research on Industry Alliance Knowledge Transfer Network Modeling and Simulation Based on Complex Networks

Xuejun MA, Jie WU, Yujie ZHANG


The booming of the complex network research provides new avenues of research and support for various types of complex systems. And a large number of studies have shown that industrial technology innovation coalition belongs to the scope of complex system, so it is available to use the complex network theory to study it. This paper first describes the theory of complex networks. Second, the use of complex network theory in the industry alliance knowledge transfer is probed in terms of the overall network structure, network node centrality and network subgroup. Finally, the industry alliances knowledge transfer network model is constructed and the quantitative analysis of the simulation example is done with the network analysis tool, reflecting the effectiveness of analyzing knowledge transfer from a complex network perspective.
