def rich_club_coefficient(G, normalized=True, Q=100, seed=None):
r"""Returns the rich-club coefficient of the graph `G`.
For each degree *k*, the *rich-club coefficient* is the ratio of the
number of actual to the number of potential edges for nodes with
degree greater than *k*:
.. math::
\phi(k) = \frac{2 E_k}{N_k (N_k - 1)}
where `N_k` is the number of nodes with degree larger than *k*, and
`E_k` is the number of edges among those nodes.
Parameters
----------
G : NetworkX graph
Undirected graph with neither parallel edges nor self-loops.
normalized : bool (optional)
Normalize using randomized network as in [1]_
Q : float (optional, default=100)
If `normalized` is True, perform `Q * m` double-edge
swaps, where `m` is the number of edges in `G`, to use as a
null-model for normalization.
seed : integer, random_state, or None (default)
Indicator of random number generation state.
See :ref:`Randomness<randomness>`.
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, seed=42)
>>> rc[0]
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]_.
