gwb1degree-ergmTermR Documentation

Geometrically weighted degree distribution for the first mode in a bipartite network

Description

This term adds one network statistic to the model equal to the weighted degree distribution with decay controlled by the decay parameter, which should be non-negative, for nodes in the first mode of a bipartite network. The first mode of a bipartite network object is sometimes known as the "actor" mode.

This term can only be used with undirected bipartite networks.

Usage

# binary: gwb1degree(decay, fixed=FALSE, attr=NULL, cutoff=30, levels=NULL)

Arguments

decay

nonnegative decay parameter for the first mode degree frequencies; required if fixed=TRUE and ignored with a warning otherwise.

fixed

optional argument indicating whether the decay parameter is fixed at the given value, or is to be fit as a curved exponential-family model (see Hunter and Handcock, 2006). The default is FALSE , which means the scale parameter is not fixed and thus the model is a curved exponential family.

attr

quantitative attribute (see Specifying Vertex attributes and Levels (?nodal_attributes) for details.)

cutoff

This optional argument sets the number of underlying degree terms to use in computing the statistics when fixed=FALSE, in order to reduce the computational burden. Its default value can also be controlled by the gw.cutoff term option control parameter. (See ?control.ergm.)

levels

TODO (See Specifying Vertex attributes and Levels (?nodal_attributes) for details.)
