A lot of examples for the use of graph theory revolve around either social networks (which I understand are useful for business intelligence) or scientific/biological application.

I am exploring the application of graph theory on business data. The current applications that I have identified are:

  • Airport connections
  • Delivery logistics - like the one eBay implemented
  • Co-purchasing networks
  • Website navigation
  • Bank transfers

Can anyone provide links to studies or companies already using graph theory in this field?

  • $\begingroup$ Do you need explanations (e.g. about use-cases you mentioned) or just use-cases? Is it a "How" question or a "what" question? $\endgroup$ Nov 12 '18 at 11:48
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry for not being clearer :) This is a "what" question. What applications does graph theory have on business data? $\endgroup$ Nov 12 '18 at 13:59
  • $\begingroup$ Look at container shipping and port operations. $\endgroup$
