Qexp = getCommunicability(W,g,nQexp)

Compute the communicability matrix Qexp from
the structural network defined by matrix W.


W : n-by-n matrix (cab be weighted, unweighted, directed or undirected)
g : global coupling factor (default is 1)
nQexp : set to 1 if want to normalize the communicability matrix Qexp between
0 and 1, 0 otherwise (default is 0).[*]


Qexp : Communicability matrix (n-by-n)

[*] If I want to compare the communicability between network of same size,
than I would want o normalize the communicability (nQexp=1). Otherwise,
if networks have different size, I do not want to normalize the communicability (nQexp=0).
