Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 187)

Trace Paths and Back Traces form Causal History of the log where arrows point in the direction of possible causation:

Here we borrow the notion of causal sets from physics and corresponding mathematics. The left diagramming idea was taken from Discrete Causal Theory book and Hasse diagrams (which is inverted in our picture). Also, such graphs are internal to software narratives compared to the more general external space we proposed earlier.

We omit Time arrow as it is possible to consider general traces and logs with their causality markers.
