"""Compute the non-randomness of graph G.
The first returned value nr is the sum of non-randomness values of all
edges within the graph (where the non-randomness of an edge tends to be
small when the two nodes linked by that edge are from two different
communities).
The second computed value nr_rd is a relative measure that indicates
to what extent graph G is different from random graphs in terms
of probability. When it is close to 0, the graph tends to be more
likely generated by an Erdos Renyi model.
Parameters
----------
G : NetworkX graph
Graph must be symmetric, connected, and without self-loops.
k : int
The number of communities in G.
If k is not set, the function will use a default community
detection algorithm to set it.
weight : string or None, optional (default=None)
The name of an edge attribute that holds the numerical value used
as a weight. If None, then each edge has weight 1, i.e., the graph is
binary.
Returns
-------
non-randomness : (float, float) tuple
Non-randomness, Relative non-randomness w.r.t.
Erdos Renyi random graphs.
Raises
------
NetworkXException
if the input graph is not connected.
NetworkXError
if the input graph contains self-loops.
Examples
--------
>>> G = nx.karate_club_graph()
>>> nr, nr_rd = nx.non_randomness(G, 2)
>>> nr, nr_rd = nx.non_randomness(G, 2, "weight")
Notes
-----
This computes Eq. (4.4) and (4.5) in Ref. [1]_.
If a weight field is passed, this algorithm will use the eigenvalues
of the weighted adjacency matrix to compute Eq. (4.4) and (4.5).
