Uniform Laplacian connectivity matrix
This function generates a connectivity matrix that is governed by a Laplacian
laplacianConnMat(num.sites, disp.dist, shift = 0, boundaries = "nothing")
number of sites. Sites are assumed to be aligned on a linear coastline.
dispersal distance in "site" units (i.e., 1 site = 1 unit of distance)
advection distance in "site" units. Defaults to 0.
string indicating what to do at boundaries. Defaults to "nothing". Possible values include: "nothing", "conservative" and "circular"
boundary argument can have the following different values:
"nothing" meaning do nothing special with boundaries; "conservative" meaning force
columns of matrix to sum to 1; and "circular" meaning wrap edges.
A square connectivity matrix
