#' Gupta-Anderson-May measure of within-group mixing
#'
#' Measure of within-group mixing in networks proposed in Gupta, Anderson and
#' May (1989).
#'
#' The measure varies between `-1/vcount(g)` for dissassortative mixing
#' and 1 for perfect within-group mixing. It takes a value of 0 for
#' proportionate mixing.
#'
#' @param object R object, see Details for available methods
#' @param ... other objects passed to/from other methods

#' @template mm-igraph-methods
#'
#' @return Numerical value of the measure.
