Compute the resource allocation index of all node pairs in ebunch.

Resource allocation index of u and v is defined as

\[\sum_{w \in \Gamma(u) \cap \Gamma(v)} \frac{1}{|\Gamma(w)|}\]

where \(\Gamma(u)\) denotes the set of neighbors of \(u\).


A NetworkX undirected graph.

ebunchiterable of node pairs, optional (default = None)

Resource allocation index will be computed for each pair of nodes given in the iterable. The pairs must be given as 2-tuples (u, v) where u and v are nodes in the graph. If ebunch is None then all non-existent edges in the graph will be used. Default value: None.


An iterator of 3-tuples in the form (u, v, p) where (u, v) is a pair of nodes and p is their resource allocation index.
