## Neighborhood-inclusion preorder

### Description

Calculates the neighborhood-inclusion preorder of an undirected graph.

### Usage

neighborhood_inclusion(g, sparse = FALSE)


### Arguments

 g An igraph object sparse Logical scalar, whether to create a sparse matrix

### Details

Neighborhood-inclusion is defined as

N(u)\subseteq N[v]

where N(u) is the neighborhood of u and N[v]=N(v)\cup \lbrace v\rbrace is the closed neighborhood of v. N(u) \subseteq N[v] implies that c(u) \leq c(v), where c is a centrality index based on a specific path algebra. Indices falling into this category are closeness (and variants), betweenness (and variants) as well as many walk-based indices (eigenvector and subgraph centrality, total communicability,...).

### Value

The neighborhood-inclusion preorder of g as matrix object. P[u,v]=1 if N(u)\subseteq N[v]

### Examples

library(igraph)
# the neighborhood inclusion preorder of a star graph is complete
g <- graph.star(5, "undirected")
P <- neighborhood_inclusion(g)
comparable_pairs(P)

# the same holds for threshold graphs
tg <- threshold_graph(50, 0.1)
P <- neighborhood_inclusion(tg)
comparable_pairs(P)

# standard centrality indices preserve neighborhood-inclusion
data("dbces11")
P <- neighborhood_inclusion(dbces11)

is_preserved(P, degree(dbces11))
is_preserved(P, closeness(dbces11))
is_preserved(P, betweenness(dbces11))
