In this thread I give formula for graph, for digraph you just need to be careful about indegree or outdegree

% TMW example

s = [1 2 2 3 3 3 4 5 5 5 8 8 9];

t = [2 3 4 1 4 5 5 3 6 7 9 10 10];

G = digraph(s,t);

A = G.adjacency;

% Use Laplacian

Din = diag(sum(A,1)); % in degree matrix

Dout = diag(sum(A,2)); % in degree matrix

Lin = Din - A % laplacian matrix

Lout = Dout - A % laplacian matrix
