reciprocity#
- reciprocity(G, nodes=None)[source]#
Compute the reciprocity in a directed graph.
The reciprocity of a directed graph is defined as the ratio of the number of edges pointing in both directions to the total number of edges in the graph. Formally, \(r = |{(u,v) \in G|(v,u) \in G}| / |{(u,v) \in G}|\).
The reciprocity of a single node u is defined similarly, it is the ratio of the number of edges in both directions to the total number of edges attached to node u.
- Parameters:
- Ggraph
A networkx directed graph
- nodescontainer of nodes, optional (default=whole graph)
Compute reciprocity for nodes in this container.
- Returns:
- outdictionary
Reciprocity keyed by node label.
Notes
The reciprocity is not defined for isolated nodes. In such cases this function will return None.
