Gives the network a series of proposals it can't refuse. Returns the statistics of the network, and, optionally, the final network.

formula 
An 
changes 
Either a matrix with three columns: tail, head, and new value, describing the changes to be made; or a list of such matrices to apply these changes in a sequence. For binary network models, the third column may be omitted. In that case, the changes are treated as toggles. Note that if a list is passed, it must either be all of changes or all of toggles. 
response 
Either a character string, a formula, or

end.network 
Whether to return a network that
results. Defaults to 
stats.start 
Whether to return the network statistics at

changes.only 
Whether to return network statistics or only their changes relative to the initial network. 
verbose 
A logical or an integer to control the amount of
progress and diagnostic information to be printed. 
control 
A list of control parameters for algorithm tuning,
typically constructed with 
If end.network==FALSE
(the default), an
mcmc
object with the requested network statistics
associed with the network series produced by applying the
specified changes. Its mcmc
attributes encode the
timing information: so start(out)
gives the time
point associated with the first row returned, and
end(out)
out the last. The "thinning interval" is
always 1.
If end.network==TRUE
, return a network
object,
representing the final network, with a matrix of statistics
described in the previous paragraph attached to it as an
attr
style attribute "stats"
