spectral_gap | R Documentation |

The spectral (or eigen) gap of a graph is the absolute difference between the biggest and second biggest eigenvalue of the adjacency matrix. To compare spectral gaps across networks, the fraction can be used.

```
spectral_gap(g, method = "frac")
```

`g` |
igraph object |

`method` |
A string, either "frac" or "abs" |

The spectral gap is bounded between 0 and 1 if `method="frac"`

. The closer
the value to one, the bigger the gap.

Numeric value

```
# The fractional spectral gap of a threshold graph is usually close to 1
g <- threshold_graph(50, 0.3)
spectral_gap(g, method = "frac")
```
