Use this if you are using igraph from R
Calculates a measure of diversity for all vertices.
diversity(graph, weights = NULL, vids = V(graph))
The input graph. Edge directions are ignored.
The vertex ids for which to calculate the measure.
The diversity of a vertex is defined as the (scaled) Shannon entropy of the weights of its incident edges:
H(i) = -sum(p[i,j] log(p[i,j]), j=1..k[i]),
p[i,j] = w[i,j] / sum(w[i,l], l=1..k[i]),
and k[i] is the (total) degree of vertex i, w[i,j] is the weight of the edge(s) between vertices i and j.
For vertices with degree less than two the function returns
A numeric vector, its length is the number of vertices.
