Software Tools to Quantify Structural Importance of Nodes in a Network
influenceR Software Tools to Quantify Structural Importance of Nodes in a Network
Provides functionality to compute various node centrality measures on networks. Included are functions to compute betweenness centrality by utilizing Madduri and Bader’s SNAP library, implementations of Burt’s constraint and effective network size ENS metrics, Borgatti’s algorithm to identify key players, and Valente’s bridging metric. On Unix systems, the betweenness, Key Players, and bridging implementations are parallelized with OpenMP, which may run faster on systems which have OpenMP configured.
