Clustering coefficient distribution

We defined the clustering coefficient of a node in a graph as the propotion of that node's neighbors that are connected, and proceeded to define the clustering coefficient as the corresponding measure applied to the whole network. In some case however, we may be interested in the distribution of the clustering coefficient over the nodes in the network. For instance, a network could have some very clustered parts, and some less clustered parts, while another network could have many nodes with a similar, average clustering coefficient. Thus, we may want to consider the distribution of clustering coefficient. This distribution can be plotted as a cumulated plot.
