Hi, I want to know how or which formula use cytoscape to calculate the Average Shortest Path Length of each node of my network (see Figure 1).

In addition, I have read that the average shortest path length it’s also known as the characteristic path length and I don’t understand it because when I do my Network Analysis->Analyse Network it returns me the simple parameters which contain a characteristic path length = 2.48 (see Figure 2). So, how can be the same the average shortest path length about my nodes and the characteristic path length of my network if they return me different values?

I attach the two images so that you can understand me and if you know help me,
