The function calculates the assortativity of a network, that measures the preference of interactions between similar nodes. As in most literature, 'similarity' is here defined in terms of node degrees.

Usage

1
assortativity(network)

Arguments

network

matrix indicating network structure (symmetric)

Value

Numeric value
