Title: Coauthor group development among scientists involoved in gravitational wave research

Abstract: Nicholas Mullins has investigated structures imposed on scientific investigators by four social relationships involving communication--informal communication, coauthorship, apprenticeship, and colleagueship. It has been shown that these structures go through four distinct stages: normal, network, cluster, and specialty. Within the increase in coauthorship in science during this century there is a possibility that one might be able to identify the stages of Mullins's model by investigating the structures imposed on a set of authors by the coauthor relationship alone.

This study examines the literature of gravitational wave physics. The subject area is likely to have undergone changes which fit the stages of Mullins's model. Techniques associated with graph theory, the Brillouin information measure, the index of centrality, and other biblometric measures are used to analyze the coauthor structures and to determine if the coauthor relationship is sufficient to identify the stages which are anticipated by the model.
