Hi, could you give us the references for the assortativity measures? What is computed is not the assortativity given by Newman 2002 I guess.
(Newman (2002) Associative mixing in networks. Phys Rev Lett 89:208701)
What is defined in Newman 2002 is exactly what is defined in the program's documentation for the scalar assortativity coefficient, in the special case where the graph is undirected and the scalar properties are the degrees.
The reference you want is Phys. Rev. E 67, 026126 (2003), also by Newman, were all this is discussed in detail.
I now updated the documentation and included a link to the above reference, so people know from where I took the reference. Thanks for pointing this out!
