Class LeichtHolmeNewmanIndexLinkPrediction<V,​E>

  • Type Parameters:
    V - the graph vertex type
    E - the graph edge type
    All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class LeichtHolmeNewmanIndexLinkPrediction<V,​E>
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements LinkPredictionAlgorithm<V,​E>
    Predict links using the Leicht-Holme-Newman Index.

    This is a local method which computes $s_{xy} = \frac{|\Gamma(u)\cap\Gamma(v))|}{k(u) \cdot k(v)}$ where for a node $v$, $\Gamma(v)$ denotes the set of neighbors of $v$ and $k(v) = |\Gamma(v)|$ denotes the degree of $v$.
