Cause-Effect graph

Cause-Effect graph gives you idea how cause-effect relations look like in the main memory.

From logical point of view Cause-Effect graph consists of several concepts connected by many cause-effect relations.



Rectangles symbolize concepts.

Example: “Explain”, “Speak”, “Mouse”.


Arrows symbolize cause-effect relations.

An arrow is directed from a cause concept to an effect concept.

The thicker an arrow is the stronger is correspondent cause-effect relation.



Cause-effect relation between “Explain” and “Speak” is strong.

Cause-effect relation between “Noise” and “Enjoy” is weak.



Usually (but not necessary) in the main memory all concepts are parts of one huge graph. However it is always possible to pick out a small sub-hierarchy which is highly cohesive with any given concept.
