|Title: ||Amdahl's law and scientific collaboration|
|Authors: ||EGGHE, Leo|
|Issue Date: ||1996|
|Citation: ||The international journal of scientometrics and informetrics, 2(1). p. 41-48|
|Abstract: ||We apply some of the ideas underlying Amdahl's law - a result which is well known in computer science - and derive results on the effectiveness of scientific collaboration. We propose a simplified model and concentrate on two aspects of scientific collaboration, namely speed and quality. We find formulae describing the gain and the relative gain in time when collaborating on a scientific project. Similarly we propose a formula expressing the gain in quality when a scientific project is done in collaboration.|
