# Generate a (non-random) network from a Yule Distribution

### Description

Generate a network with a given number of actors having a degree distribution draw from a Yule distribution. The resultant network is not random - that is, is not a random draw from all such networks.

### Usage

1 |

### Arguments

`n` |
Number of actors in the network. |

`rho` |
PDF exponent of the Yule distribution. |

`maxdeg` |
Maximum degree to sample (using truncation of the distribution). If this is greater then |

`maxit` |
integer; maximum number of resamplings of the degree sequence to find a valid network. |

`verbose` |
Print out details of the progress of the algorithm. |

### Value

If the `network`

package is available, the network is returned as
a `network`

object. If not a sociomatrix is returned.
