directed_modularity_matrix
(G, nodelist=None, weight=None)[source]¶ Return the directed modularity matrix of G.
The modularity matrix is the matrix B = A  <A>, where A is the adjacency matrix and <A> is the expected adjacency matrix, assuming that the graph is described by the configuration model.
More specifically, the element B_ij of B is defined as
\[B_{ij} = A_{ij}  k_i^{out} k_j^{in} / m\]where \(k_i^{in}\) is the in degree of node i, and \(k_j^{out}\) is the out degree of node j, with m the number of edges in the graph. When weight is set to a name of an attribute edge, Aij, k_i, k_j and m are computed using its value.
Parameters:  G (DiGraph) – A NetworkX DiGraph
 nodelist (list, optional) – The rows and columns are ordered according to the nodes in nodelist. If nodelist is None, then the ordering is produced by G.nodes().
 weight (string or None, optional (default=None)) – The edge attribute that holds the numerical value used for the edge weight. If None then all edge weights are 1.
Returns: B – The modularity matrix of G.
Return type: Numpy matrix
Examples
>>> import networkx as nx >>> G = nx.DiGraph() >>> G.add_edges_from(((1,2), (1,3), (3,1), (3,2), (3,5), (4,5), (4,6), ... (5,4), (5,6), (6,4))) >>> B = nx.directed_modularity_matrix(G)
Notes
NetworkX defines the element A_ij of the adjacency matrix as 1 if there is a link going from node i to node j. Leicht and Newman use the opposite definition. This explains the different expression for B_ij.
