I’m noob in Network Analysis and I’ve some doubts about ‘‘connectivity’’. I’m analysing a biological network and trying to quantify the connectedness. Firstly, I checked some articles and the common statistic that everyone use is the average degree but I saw the
edge_connectivity command and it seems more attractive and robust (what is the minimum number of edges to remove to generate a disconnected graph). I used the command:
edge_connectivity(Mygraph, source = NULL, target = NULL, checks = TRUE)
R says that the value is 0. I don’t know if it is because source and target shouldn’t be
NULL or due to I failed in a previous step.
Do you know other ways to estimate connectedness?
Thank you very much for your time!
