C 2N is the variety of methods of selecting periods from N sessions. therefore patents that belong to ‘distant’ technological periods are thought of to be broader than those who belong to ‘close’ technological periods. Backward distance measures the impact of the patents within the set of backward citations at the focal patent and is computed utilizing the next formulation: Db five a i,j [ p three dij NB B the place p is the first know-how category of the focal patent, B is the set of fundamental expertise periods for patents within the set of backward citations of the focal patent and NB is the variety of parts in B. a bigger price of backward distance exhibits that the focal patent is technologically extra ‘distant’ from the patents that it cites. eventually, ahead distance is outlined and interpreted equally in line with ahead citations. determine 7. 1 presents an total schematic of the entire measures utilized in our analyses. desk 7. 2 presents correlations between those new measures in addition to with the 4 conventional measures. even though lots of those measures have a nonzero correlation, the top correlation is barely zero. 483 (between from side to side distances). moreover, numerous of the measures convey virtually no correlation with different measures. for example, focal breadth is uncorrelated with all of the conventional measures. this means that they're measuring diverse dimensions of innovativeness. 172 Backward citations Distance from past paintings (backward distance) determine 7. 1  Measures of technological management Breadth of past artwork (originality) Distance to destiny artwork (forward distance) Breadth of security (claims) Technological breadth (focal breadth) Focal patent ahead citations caliber (non-self citations) Breadth of impact (generality) Technological management in nanotechnology ­173 desk 7. 2  comparability of measures degree Backward   measures 1 Originality 2 Backward distance Focal measures 3 Log claims 4 Focal breadth ahead   measures 5 Log ahead citations 6 Generality 7 Forward distance suggest (std dev. ) Correlation coefficient 1 2 zero. 650 (0. 297) four. 549 (1. 392) 1. 000 zero. 158 1. 000 2. 953 (0. 726) four. 919 (1. 099) zero. 063 zero. 081 2. 448 (1. 392) zero. 594 (0. 361) four. 770 (1. 554) three four five 6 7 1. 000 −0. 009* zero. 247 −0. 005* 1. 000 zero. 123 zero. 112 zero. 137 zero. 005* 1. 000 zero. 208 zero. 129 zero. 061 −0. 030* zero. 431 1. 000 zero. 094 zero. 483 zero. 040$ zero. 209 zero. 076 zero. 163 1. 000 Note:  * now not major at or lower than the five% point. We finish this part with a few reviews at the capability functions of this distance degree and its boundaries. First, as elaborated past, it allows us to think about similarity throughout expertise sessions rather than implicitly having to imagine equidistance throughout periods. the gap throughout technological sessions varies significantly and, therefore, assuming equidistance will are likely to overestimate distance for heavily spaced periods and underestimate distance for sessions spaced a ways aside. moment, it not just permits us to degree the scope of a particular patent, but additionally offers us with the way to degree the space of a focal patent from the other set of patents, for instance the set of backward or ahead citations.
