DirectedClustering: Alternative Clustering Coefficients for Directed/Undirected...

Description Note Author(s) References


The DirectedClustering R package presented here includes an enhanced R implementation of Local and Global (average) Clustering Coefficients for Directed/Undirected and Unweighted/Weighted Networks.
Functions are based on Barrat et al. (2004) and Onnela et al. (2005) coefficients when the network is undirected, while it is based on Fagiolo (2007) and Clemente and Grassi (2018) proposals when the network is directed. In the directed case, different components of directed clustering coefficient are also considered.

Details of alternative coefficients computed by DirectedClustering R package can be found in Clemente, Grassi (2018).
