  1. Network diameter: The maximum distance between any two nodes in a network. Clustering coefficient: The percentage of neighbors of a node that can reach another neighbor without passing through it. Average degree: Edges of all nodes divided by total number of nodes. A network with a higher average degree is more complex. Modularity: A parameter that assesses whether the network can be divided into several modules.
