We explore the geometry of networks in terms of an n-dimensional Euclidean embedding represented by the Moore-Penrose pseudo-inverse of the graph Laplacian (L+). The reciprocal of squared distance from each node i to the origin in this n-dimensional space yields a structural centrality index (C*(i)) for the node, while the harmonic sum of individual node… CONTINUE READING
