We denote the sum of the distances from a vertex u ∈ V to any other vertex in a graph G = (V,E) as the total distance $\sum_{v\in V}d(u,v)$.

The problem of finding an appropriate location can be solved by computing the set of vertices with a minimum total distance.

In SNA literature, a centrality measure based on this concept is called closeness. The focus lies here, for example, on measuring the closeness of a person to all other people in the network. People with a small total distance are considered as more important as those with high total distance. The most commonly employed definition of closeness is the reciprocal of the total distance:

$C_{C}(u)=\frac{1}{\sum_{v\in V}d(u,v)}\qquad (2)$

$C_{C}(u)$ grows with decreasing total distance of u, therefore it is also known as structural index.

$C_{C}(u)=\frac{1}{\sum_{v\in V}d(u,v)}\qquad (3.2)$

In our sense this definition is a vertex centrality, since cC(u) grows with decreasing total distance of u and it is clearly a structural index.
