backbone: Extracts the Backbone from Weighted Graphs

Provides methods for extracting from a weighted graph a binary or signed backbone that retains only the significant edges. The user may input a weighted graph, or a bipartite graph from which a weighted graph is first constructed via projection. Backbone extraction methods include the stochastic degree sequence model (SDSM; Neal, Z. P. (2014). <doi:10.1016/j.socnet.2014.06.001>), the fixed degree sequence model (FDSM; Zweig, K. A., and Kaufmann, M. (2011). <doi:10.1007/s13278-011-0021-0>), the fixed row model (FRM; Neal, Z. P. (2013). <doi:10.1007/s13278-013-0107-y>), the fixed column model (FCM; Neal, Domagalski, and Sagan (2021). <arXiv:2105.13396>), the fixed fill model (FFM; Neal, Domagalski, and Sagan (2021). <arXiv:2105.13396>), and a universal threshold method.
