Wiki Markup
Since we are focus on scholarly data, the data will be distributed into batches (usually yearly batches) before the burst computation started. The burst detection algorithm was re-implemented in Java based on the origin C implementation. Please see Kleinberg \[pg. 14\]. We also replace the missing years with empty batches to make the batches continuously by year. There will no burst for these empty batches. Users can change the scaling factor for the batches to month, day, hour; even number of years per batch. The batching implementation will not consider the date fields with the scaling factors that are smaller than the user selected scaling factor. For example, if the days scaling factor is selected, the batching algorithm will remove the hour and minute fields in the date value. This algorithm was re-implemented in Java based on the origin C implementation.

Usage Hints

Please read the Description section before continue. This burst algorithm is a text based burst detection that provide burst results in hierarchical structure. However, it is also capable to detect if the bursts exist by setting the bursting states to 1.
