# communicability_exp#

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

Communicability between pairs of nodes in G.

communicability_betweenness_centrality

Communicability betweenness 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 ,

$C(u,v) = (e^A)_{uv},$

where A is the adjacency matrix of G.
