influenceR: Software Tools to Quantify Structural Importance of Nodes in a
Provides functionality to compute various node centrality measures on networks.
Included are functions to compute betweenness centrality (by utilizing Madduri and Bader's
SNAP library), implementations of constraint and effective network size by Burt (2000) <doi:10.1016/S0191-3085(00)22009-1>; algorithm
to identify key players by Borgatti (2006) <doi:10.1007/s10588-006-7084-x>; and the
bridging algorithm by Valente and Fujimoto (2010) <doi:10.1016/j.socnet.2010.03.003>.
On Unix systems, the betweenness, Key Players, and
bridging implementations are parallelized with OpenMP, which may run
faster on systems which have OpenMP configured.
