"""
Generates a histogram of the vertex betweenness centrality of the provided graph.
Histogram function is fundamentally proxied through to numpy's `histogram` function, and bin selection
follows `numpy.histogram` processes.
The betweenness centrality calculation can take advantage of networkx' implementation of randomized sampling
by providing num_random_samples (or k, in networkx betweenness_centrality nomenclature).
See: https://networkx.github.io/documentation/networkx-1.10/reference/generated/networkx.algorithms.centrality.betweenness_centrality.html
for more details.
:param networkx.Graph graph: the graph. No changes will be made to it.
:param bin_directive: Is passed directly through to numpy's
"histogram" (and thus, "histogram_bin_edges") functions.
See: https://docs.scipy.org/doc/numpy-1.15.1/reference/generated/numpy.histogram_bin_edges.html#numpy.histogram_bin_edges
In short description: if an int is provided, we use `bin_directive` number of equal range bins.
If a sequence is provided, these bin edges will be used and can be sized to whatever size you prefer.
Note that the np.ndarray should be ndim=1 and the values should be float or int.
:type bin_directive: Union[int, List[Union[float, int]], numpy.ndarray, str]
:param Optional[int] num_random_samples: Use num_random_samples for vertex samples to *estimate* betweeness.
num_random_samples should be <= len(graph.nodes). The larger num_random_samples is, the better the
approximation.
:param bool normalized: If True the betweenness values are normalized by 2/((n-1)(n-2)) for graphs, and
1/((n-1)(n-2)) for directed graphs where n is the number of vertices in the graph.
:param Optional[str] weight_attribute: If None, all edge weights are considered equal. Otherwise holds the name of
the edge attribute used as weight.
:param bool include_endpoints: If True include the endpoints in the shortest path counts.
:param random_seed: Random seed or preconfigured random instance to be used for
randomly selecting random samples. Only used if num_random_samples is set. None will generate a new random
state. Specifying a random state will provide consistent results between runs.
:type random_seed: Optional[Union[int, random.Random]]
