An implementation of the absorbing random-walk centrality measure for graphs.

Project Description

This is an implementation of the absorbing random-walk centrality measure for nodes in graphs. For the definition of the measure, as well as a study of the related optimization problem and algorithmic techniques, please see the pre-print publication on arXiv. A short version of this paper will appear in the ICDM 2015.

You can install the absorbing_centrality package by executing the following command in a terminal.

pip install git+


For instructions on how to use the package, consult its documentation.


To run all the tests for the code, you will need tox – check its webpage for instructions on how to install it.

Once tox is installed, use your terminal to enter the directory with the local copy of the code (here it’s named ‘absorbing-centrality’) and simply type the following command.

absorbing-centrality $ tox

If everything goes well, you’ll receive a congratulatory message.
