#' Median Local Clustering Coefficient

#' @description Calculate the median local clustering coefficient of a graph.
#' @param g The input network.
#' @details The local clustering coefficient of a node is the ratio of the triangles connected to the node and the triples centered on the \code{node.metric.cluster.median()} calculates the (estimated) median clustering coefficient for all nodes in graph \emph{g} with a justified error.
#' @return A real constant.
