This function calculates several measures of gene network preservation. Given gene expression data in several individual data sets, it calculates the individual adjacency matrices, forms the preservation network and finally forms several summary measures of adjacency preservation for each node (gene) in the network.

`multiExpr` |
expression data in the multi-set format (see |

`useSets` |
optional specification of sets to be used for the preservation calculation. Defaults to using all sets. |

`useGenes` |
optional specification of genes to be used for the preservation calculation. Defaults to all genes. |

`corFnc` |
character string containing the name of the function to calculate correlation. Suggested
functions include |

`corOptions` |
further argument to the correlation function. |

`networkType` |
a character string encoding network type. Recognized values are (unique
abbreviations of) |

`power` |
soft thresholding power for network construction. Should be a number greater than 1. |

`sampleLinks` |
logical: should network connections be sampled ( |

`nLinks` |
number of links to be sampled. Should be set such that |

`blockSize` |
correlation calculations will be split into square blocks of this size, to prevent running out of memory for large gene sets. |

`setSeed` |
seed to be used for sampling, for repeatability. If a seed already exists, it is saved before the sampling starts and restored upon exit. |

`weightPower` |
power with which higher adjacencies will be weighted in weighted means |

`verbose` |
integer level of verbosity. Zero means silent, higher values make the output progressively more and more verbose. |

`indent` |
indentation for diagnostic messages. Zero means no indentation, each unit adds two spaces. |

The preservation network is formed from adjacencies of compared sets. For 'complete' preservations, all
given sets are compared at once; for 'pairwise' preservations, the sets are compared in pairs. Unweighted
preservations are simple mean preservations for each node; their weighted counterparts are weighted
averages in which a preservation of adjacencies *A[i,j; 1]* and
*A[i,j; 2]* of nodes *i,j* between sets 1 and 2
is weighted by
* ( (A[i,j; 1]+A[i,j; 2])/2)^weightPower*.
The hyperbolic preservation is based on
*tanh[( max - min)/(max+min)^2]*, where *max* and
*min* are the componentwise maximum and minimum of the compared adjacencies, respectively.

A list with the following components:

`pairwise` |

`pairwiseWeighted` |
a matrix with rows corresponding to genes and columns to unique pairs of given sets, giving the pairwise weighted preservation of the adjacencies connecting the gene to all other genes. |

`completeWeighted` |

`completeWeightedHyperbolic` |
a vector with one entry for each input gene containing the complete weighted hyperbolic mean preservation of the adjacencies connecting the gene to all other genes. |
