Modularity measures strength of division of a network into communities (modules,clusters). Measures takes values from range \(<-1,1>\). Value close to 1 indicates strong community structure. When \(Q=0\) then the community division is not better than random.


Where \(k\) is number of communities, \(e_{ii}\) is number of edges that has both ends in community \(i\) and \(a_i\) is number of edges with one end in community \(i\)
