#' Compute a measure of modular complexity of patent documents
#'
#' This function computes a measure of modular complexity of patent documents from technological classes - patents (incidence) matrices
#' @param mat A bipartite adjacency matrix (can be a sparse matrix)
#' @param sparse Logical; is the input matrix a sparse matrix? Defaults to FALSE, but can be set to TRUE if the input matrix is a sparse matrix
#' @param list Logical; is the input a list? Defaults to FALSE (input = adjacency matrix), but can be set to TRUE if the input is an edge list
