- communicability_exp(G)[source]¶
Returns communicability between all pairs of nodes in G.
Communicability between pair of node (u,v) of node in G is the sum of walks of different lengths starting at node u and ending at node v.
- Parameters
- G: graph
- Returns
- comm: dictionary of dictionaries
Dictionary of dictionaries keyed by nodes with communicability as the value.
- Raises
- NetworkXError
If the graph is not undirected and simple.

communicability_betweenness_centrality
Communicability betweeness centrality for each node in G.
Notes
This algorithm uses matrix exponentiation of the adjacency matrix.
Let G=(V,E) be a simple undirected graph. Using the connection between the powers of the adjacency matrix and the number of walks in the graph, the communicability between nodes u and v is [1],
\[C(u,v) = (e^A)_{uv},\]where
A
is the adjacency matrix of G.References
