Degree Centrality
Degree centrality is defined as the number of edges incident upon a node (i.e., the number of ties that a node has). The degree can be interpreted in terms of the immediate risk of a node for catching whatever is flowing through the network (such as a virus, or some information).
Specification
CREATE QUERY tg_degree_cent(SET<STRING> v_type, SET<STRING> e_type, SET<STRING> re_type, BOOL in_degree = TRUE, BOOL out_degree = TRUE, INT top_k=100, BOOL print_accum = True, STRING result_attr = "", STRING file_path = "")
Parameters
Name  Description  Data type 


A set of vertex types. 


A set of edge types. 


A set of reverse edge types. If an edge is undirected, put the edge name in the set as well. 


Boolean value that indicates whether to count the incoming edges as part of a vertex’s degree centrality. 


Boolean value that indicates whether to count the outgoing edges as part of a vertex’s degree centrality. 


The number of vertices with the highest scores to return. 


If true, print results to JSON output. 


If not empty, save the degree centrality score of each vertex to this attribute. 


If not empty, save results in CSV to this file. 

Example
Suppose we have the following graph:
Running the query on the graph will show that Dan has the highest degree centrality:
RUN QUERY tg_degree_cent(["person"], ["friendship"],["friendship"])
{
