# Graph Local Overlap Measure: Salton Index

## #Graph #Basics #Clustering

The Salton index is

$$ \mathbf S_{\text{Salton}}[u,v] = \frac{ 2\lvert \mathcal N (u) \cap \mathcal N(v) \rvert }{ \sqrt{d_u d_v}}, $$

where $d_u$ is the node degree of node $u$ and $\mathcal N(u)$ is the neighbor nodes of $u$.
