loop.random: a random method to decompose the weighted graph into single...

Description Usage Arguments Author(s) References See Also


At each step, a random one of all candidate nodes was chosen when finding next node in the process of making a single connected graph. This method can allow us to obtain different decomposition results possibly. In contrast, the method used in 'loop.forward' function will always return only one possibility of decomposition. This algorithm is the one employed in the function 'decomp'. Next version will use function 'uniquepaths' to get all possible decompositions at the same time.
