def communicability(G):
r"""Returns communicability between all pairs of nodes in G.
The communicability between pairs of nodes 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.
See Also
--------
communicability_exp:
Communicability between all pairs of nodes in G using spectral
decomposition.
communicability_betweenness_centrality:
Communicability betweeness centrality for each node in G.
Notes
-----
This algorithm uses a spectral decomposition 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` based on the graph spectrum
is [1]_
.. math::
C(u,v)=\sum_{j=1}^{n}\phi_{j}(u)\phi_{j}(v)e^{\lambda_{j}},
where `\phi_{j}(u)` is the `u\rm{th}` element of the `j\rm{th}` orthonormal
eigenvector of the adjacency matrix associated with the eigenvalue
`\lambda_{j}`.
