Algorithms for Centrality Indices
The usefulness of centrality indices stands or falls with the ability to compute them quickly. This is a problem at the heart of computer science, and much research is devoted to the design and analysis of efficient algorithms. For example, shortest-path computations are well understood, and these insights are easily applicable to all distance based centrality measures. This chapter is concerned with algorithms that efficiently compute the centrality indices of the previous chapters.
