Seriation algorithms for determining the evolution of The Star Husband Tale

Crista Arangala, J. Todd Lee and Cheryl Borden

Vol. 7 (2014), No. 1, 1–14
Abstract

We give an introduction to seriation techniques and apply such techniques to the North American folklore tale known as the Star Husband Tale. In particular, a spectral algorithm with imposed clustering is applied, with significant results that support the algorithm’s effectiveness.
