Approximate clustering coefficient for an undirected graph

1 | ```
clusteringCoefAppr(g, k=length(nodes(g)), Weighted=FALSE, vW=degree(g))
``` |

`g` |
an instance of the |

`Weighted` |
calculate weighted clustering coefficient or not |

`vW` |
vertex weights to use when calculating weighted clustering coefficient |

`k` |
parameter controls total expected runtime |

It is quite expensive to compute cluster coefficient and transitivity exactly
for a large graph by computing the number of triangles in the graph. Instead,
`clusteringCoefAppr`

samples triples with appropriate probability, returns
the ratio between the number of existing edges and the number of samples.
