[docs]def closeness_vitality(G, node=None, weight=None, wiener_index=None): """Returns the closeness vitality for nodes in the graph. The *closeness vitality* of a node, defined in Section 3.6.2 of [1], is the change in the sum of distances between all node pairs when excluding that node. Parameters ---------- G : NetworkX graph A strongly-connected graph. weight : string The name of the edge attribute used as weight. This is passed directly to the :func:`~networkx.wiener_index` function. node : object If specified, only the closeness vitality for this node will be returned. Otherwise, a dictionary mapping each node to its closeness vitality will be returned. Other parameters ---------------- wiener_index : number If you have already computed the Wiener index of the graph `G`, you can provide that value here. Otherwise, it will be computed for you. Returns ------- dictionary or float If `node` is None, this function returns a dictionary with nodes as keys and closeness vitality as the value. Otherwise, it returns only the closeness vitality for the specified `node`. The closeness vitality of a node may be negative infinity if removing that node would disconnect the graph. Examples -------- >>> G = nx.cycle_graph(3) >>> nx.closeness_vitality(G) {0: 2.0, 1: 2.0, 2: 2.0} See Also -------- closeness_centrality References ---------- ..
