# MNC - Maximum Neighborhood Component

#### Definition

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.
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).

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