The GEM layout algorithm

Description

Place vertices on the plane using the GEM force-directed layout algorithm.

Usage

layout_with_gem(
  graph,
  coords = NULL,
  maxiter = 40 * vcount(graph)^2,
  temp.max = vcount(graph),
  temp.min = 1/10,
  temp.init = sqrt(vcount(graph))
)

with_gem(...)

Arguments

graph

The input graph. Edge directions are ignored.

coords

If not NULL, then the starting coordinates should be given here, in a two or three column matrix, depending on the dim argument.

maxiter

The maximum number of iterations to perform. Updating a single vertex counts as an iteration. A reasonable default is 40 * n * n, where n is the number of vertices. The original paper suggests 4 * n * n, but this usually only works if the other parameters are set up carefully.

temp.max

The maximum allowed local temperature. A reasonable default is the number of vertices.

temp.min

The global temperature at which the algorithm terminates (even before reaching maxiter iterations). A reasonable default is 1/10.

temp.init

Initial local temperature of all vertices. A reasonable default is the square root of the number of vertices.

Passed to layout_with_gem.

Details

See the referenced paper below for the details of the algorithm.

Value

A numeric matrix with two columns, and as many rows as the number of vertices.
