Search the ergm-terms documentation for appropriate terms

Description

Searches through the ergm.terms help page and prints out a list of terms appropriate for the specified network's structural constraints, optionally restricting by additional categories and keyword matches.

Usage

1
search.ergmTerms(keyword, net,  categories, name)

Arguments

keyword

optional character keyword to search for in the text of the term descriptions. Only matching terms will be returned. Matching is case insensitive.

net

a network object that the term would be applied to, used as template to determine directedness, bipartite, etc

categories

optional character vector of category tags to use to restrict the results (i.e. 'curved', 'triad-related')

name

optional character name of a specific term to return

Details

Uses grep internally to match keywords against the term description, so keywords is currently matched as a single phrase. Category tags will only return a match if all of the specified tags are included in the term.

Value

prints out the name and short description of matching terms, and invisibly returns them as a list. If name is specified, prints out the full definition for the named term.

# find all of the terms that mention triangles
search.ergmTerms('triangle')

# two ways to search for bipartite terms:

# search using a bipartite net as a template
myNet<-network.initialize(5,bipartite=3)
search.ergmTerms(net=myNet)

# or request the bipartite category
search.ergmTerms(categories='bipartite')

# search on multiple categories
search.ergmTerms(categories=c('bipartite','dyad-independent'))

# print out the content for a specific term
search.ergmTerms(name='b2factor')
