    Core-set

    Hi all,

    What is a «core-set» as an influential group of people?

    Thanks

    Re: Core-set

    More information is needed.

    What context??

    "Core" is the center. "Set" can mean several things.

    Re: Core-set

    The text is a note at the end of a book, so there's not much of a context, I think:

    «6.- Contemporary elite networks and "core-sets" in science are discussed in...»

    Those Contemporary elite networks and "core-sets" in science are groups of prominent scientists that played the role of spreading the theories they liked.

    I know that, in the end, this is not much more than what I first posted, but it is a note, not a full text, and that is all the context the author provides the reader with. Because of this, I also thought "core-set" should be something common. Now I see it is not.

    Thank you

    It means the central group of something.
