CIP - Calculator for the Impact of Perturbations

CIP was written as a hands-on supplement to the paper:
Key species and properties for perturbations of food webs, 2013.
by: H. Aufderheide, L. Rudolf, T. Gross, K. D. Lafferty 2013

In the paper, we develop a method to find important parts of a complex network with regard to the effects of a perturbation.
The CIP-Program is a simple implementation of this method in python.

CIP takes a Jacobian matrix describing the interactions between the elements of a network.
From this Jacobian matrix, it calculates
- The sensitivity of each element to perturbations (see paper for details).
- The influence of each element through perturbations (see paper for details).
- The response to a perturbation (if a specific perturbation is provided).

An example is included in the download.
