MNC - Maximum Neighborhood Component


The neighborhood of a node v, nodes adjacent to v, induce a subnetwork N(v). The score of node v, MNC(v), is defined to be the size of the maximum connected component of N(v). The neighborhood N(v) is the set of nodes adjacent to v and does not contain node v.

MNC(v) = |V(MC(v))|

where MC(v) is a maximum connected component of the G[N(v)] and G[N(v)] is the induced subgraph of G by N(v).
