Notes for Chapter 6

1Instead of graph, Jacques Bertin (or his translator) uses the term network for structures of edge-connected nodes. Kress and van Leeuwen use the term diagram. We will be following NIST's Dictionary of Algorithms, Data Structures, and Problems (DAD) as well as other on-line sources closely.

2 I prefer node to vertex, since a vertex is simply formed by the intersection of lines, but in the abstract structures we will be looking at, the nodes represent abstract objects. Similarly, I prefer edge to branch, because branch suggests descent from mother node to daughter, and hence suggests the graph is directed, which it may not be.

"The Paris of the Second Empire in Baudelaire [1938]," also in Zohn. This was the draft that Adorno found unacceptable; it was revised with a new center section, "Some Motifs in the Poetry of Charles Baudelaire" and was then accepted by Adorno and the Institut für Sozialforschung.
