[docs]def rich_club_coefficient(G, normalized=True, Q=100): """Return the rich-club coefficient of the graph G. The rich-club coefficient is the ratio, for every degree k, of the number of actual to the number of potential edges for nodes with degree greater than k: .. math:: \\phi(k) = \\frac{2 Ek}{Nk(Nk-1)} where Nk is the number of nodes with degree larger than k, and Ek be the number of edges among those nodes. Parameters ---------- G : NetworkX graph normalized : bool (optional) Normalize using randomized network (see [1]_) Q : float (optional, default=100) If normalized=True build a random network by performing Q*M double-edge swaps, where M is the number of edges in G, to use as a null-model for normalization. Returns ------- rc : dictionary A dictionary, keyed by degree, with rich club coefficient values. Examples -------- >>> G = nx.Graph([(0,1),(0,2),(1,2),(1,3),(1,4),(4,5)]) >>> rc = nx.rich_club_coefficient(G,normalized=False) >>> rc[0] # doctest: +SKIP 0.4 Notes ------ The rich club definition and algorithm are found in [1]_. This algorithm ignores any edge weights and is not defined for directed graphs or graphs with parallel edges or self loops. Estimates for appropriate values of Q are found in [2]_.
