Abstract: In order to quantify the network heterogeneity, the concepts of Lorentz curve and Gini coefficient are extend to the study of network heterogeneity, the Gini coefficient of complex network base on importance degree of connectivity sub-graph is proposed, and it can be used to characterize network heterogeneity. Then, the conditions for obtaining the heterogeneity maximum and minimum of the network with n nodes and k connected sub-graphs are given. Finally, an example is given to illustrate the validity and practicability of this paper.

Key words: Gini coefficient, network heterogeneity, importance degree of connectivity sub-graph
