Initialize a Network Class Object

Share:

Description

Create and initialize a network object with n vertices.

Usage

1
2
network.initialize(n, directed = TRUE, hyper = FALSE, loops = FALSE, 
    multiple = FALSE, bipartite = FALSE)

Arguments

n

the number of vertices to initialize

directed

logical; should edges be interpreted as directed?

hyper

logical; are hyperedges allowed?

loops

logical; should loops be allowed?

multiple

logical; are multiplex edges allowed?

bipartite

count; should the network be interpreted as bipartite? If present (i.e., non-NULL) it is the count of the number of actors in the first mode of the bipartite network. In this case, the overall number of vertices is equal to the number of 'actors' (first mode) plus the number of ‘events’ (second mode), with the vertex.ids of all actors preceeding all events. The edges are then interpreted as nondirected.

Details

Generally, network.initialize is called by other constructor functions as part of the process of creating a network.

Value

An object of class network
