Subject Re: Apache Flink 1.1.4 - Gelly - LocalClusteringCoefficient - Returning values above 1?
Date Fri, 20 Jan 2017 19:06:31 GMT
```Hi Miguel,

the LocalClusteringCoefficient algorithm returns a DataSet of type Result,
which basically wraps a vertex id, its degree, and the number of triangles
containing this vertex. The number 11 you see is indeed the degree of
vertex 5113. The Result type contains the method
getLocalClusteringCoefficientScore() which allows you to retrieve the
clustering coefficient score for a vertex. The method simply divides the
numbers of triangles by the number of potential edges between neighbors.

I'm sorry that you this is not clear in the docs. We should definitely
improve them to explain what is the output and how to retrieve the actual
clustering coefficient values. I have opened a JIRA for this .

Cheers,
-Vasia.
