[Sigmetrics] Need Help: Positioning the "Black Swan Theory" in Scientometrics

Dear All,

You may be aware that the black swan theory or theory of black swan events
is a metaphor that describes events of large magnitude that come as a
surprise, have a major effect, and are often inappropriately
rationalized after the fact with the benefit of hindsight.

Such events, considered extreme outliers precipitate what is usually
termed "Silent Risk".



Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Silent Risk, Descartes Publishing, 2015.

Please note that all DesCartes books and monographs are required to be
freely available in PDF form.


I am trying to locate references on factoring the "Black Swan Theory" in
the evolving gamut of Scientometrics.

Please help.

Warmest Regards
