LocalClusteringCoefficient(const Graph &G, bool turbo = false)

Constructs the LocalClusteringCoefficient class for the given Graph G. If the local clustering coefficient scores should be normalized, then set normalized to true. The graph may not contain self-loops.

There are two algorithms available. The trivial (parallel) algorithm needs only a small amount of additional memory. The turbo mode adds a (sequential, but fast) pre-processing step using ideas from [0]. This reduces the running time significantly for most graphs. However, the turbo mode needs O(m) additional memory. In practice this should be a bit less than half of the memory that is needed for the graph itself. The turbo mode is particularly effective for graphs with nodes of very high degree and a very skewed degree distribution.
