The SEI helps advance software engineering principles and practices and serves as a national resource in software engineering, computer security, and process improvement. The SEI works closely with defense and government organizations, industry, and academia to continually improve software-intensive systems. Its core purpose is to help organizations improve their software engineering capabilities and develop or acquire the right software, defect free, within budget and on time, every time.
The local clustering coefficient is examined for its topological implications and a new formula to generate the local clustering coefficient is given. The formula is based on the homology of the local induced subgraph.
