Abstract: Using citation data of articles written by some Nobel Prize winners in physics, we show that concave, convex and straight curves represent different types of interactions between old ideas and new insights. These cases illustrate different diffusion characteristics of academic knowledge, depending on the nature of the new publications. In this way our work adds to the study of the development of science and links this development to citation analysis.
