Table 1 shce centrality parameters

From: Structural hole centrality: evaluating social capital through strategic network formation

Parameter Description
\(b_v\) Benefit associated with connecting to a node v, where that benefit captures the structural quality of v in the network
\(\delta \) Indirect path benefit discount, such that a path of length \(\ell \ge 2\) to a node v, accrues a benefit of \(\delta ^\ell b_v\)
\(d_{\text{max}}\) The maximum path length, such that there is no benefit to being connected along a path of greater length
\(\gamma \) Proportion of the indirect path benefit that is associated to the source of a path
\(\eta \) The scaled cost of a connection to a node
