Centrality is a concept often used in social network analysis to study different properties of networks that are modeled as graphs. We present a new centrality metric called localized bridging centrality (LBC). LBC is based on the bridging centrality (BC) metric that Hwang et al. recently introduced. Bridging nodes are nodes that are strategically located in between highly connected regions. LBC is capable of identifying bridging nodes with an accuracy comparable to that of the BC metric for… CONTINUE READING
