networkx.algorithms.centrality.edge_load_centrality¶

edge_load_centrality
(G, cutoff=False)[source]¶ Compute edge load.
WARNING: This concept of edge load has not been analysed or discussed outside of NetworkX that we know of. It is based loosely on load_centrality in the sense that it counts the number of shortest paths which cross each edge. This function is for demonstration and testing purposes.
 Parameters
G (graph) – A networkx graph
cutoff (bool, optional (default=False)) – If specified, only consider paths of length <= cutoff.
 Returns
A dict keyed by edge 2tuple to the number of shortest paths
which use that edge. Where more than one path is shortest
the count is divided equally among paths.
