pymatgen.analysis.hhi module

This module is used to estimate the Herfindahl-Hirschman Index, or HHI, of chemical compounds. The HHI is a measure of how geographically confined or dispersed the elements comprising a compound are. A low HHI is desirable because it means the component elements are geographically dispersed.
