Measuring Closeness Centrality in Graphs

Niko Neugebauer explains the concept of Closeness Centrality:

The real center of the network or also known as The King of the Network, Closeness Centrality is a measure which represents the relative location of the Vertice to the center of the network, or better to say the average distance to all other Vertices within that network.

This measure results in the high effectiveness of information spreading/flow within the given network, because of the necessary number of Edges to cross to reach to any given connected Vertice.

Read on to see why this is useful and how you can calculate it in SQL Server 2019.

Niko Neugebauer shows us how to use the SHORTEST_PATH() function with graph tables in SQL Server 2019: SHORTEST_PATH() function will allow you to traverse the given graph looking for the shortest path between different Nodes. It will use the Arbitrary Length Pattern to define the traversal path. This function will not return any results any results in SELECT […]
