## Calculate clustering coefficient for an undirected graph

### Description

Calculate clustering coefficient for an undirected graph

### Usage

clusteringCoef(g, Weighted=FALSE, vW=degree(g))

### Arguments

`g` |
an instance of the `graph` class |

`Weighted` |
calculate weighted clustering coefficient or not |

`vW` |
vertex weights to use when calculating weighted clustering coefficient |

### Details

For an undirected graph `G`

, let delta(v) be the number of triangles with
`v`

as a node, let tau(v) be the number of triples, i.e., paths of length 2 with
`v`

as the center node.

Let V' be the set of nodes with degree at least 2.

Define clustering coefficient for `v`

, c(v) = (delta(v) / tau(v)).

Define clustering coefficient for `G`

, C(G) = sum(c(v)) / |V'|,
for all `v`

in V'.

Define weighted clustering coefficient for `g`

,
Cw(G) = sum(w(v) * c(v)) / sum(w(v)), for all `v`

in V'.

### Value

Clustering coefficient for graph `G`

.
