View source: R/pathlengths.R

Description

Computes global average shortest path length, local average shortest path length, eccentricity, and diameter of a network

Usage

1
pathlengths(A, weighted = FALSE)

Arguments

A

An adjacency matrix of network data

weighted

Is the network weighted? Defaults to FALSE. Set to TRUE for weighted measures

Value

Returns a list containing:

ASPL

Global average shortest path length

ASPLi

Local average shortest path length

ecc

Eccentricity (i.e., maximal shortest path length between a node and any other node)

D

Diameter of the network (i.e., the maximum of eccentricity)
