Description

Returns TRUE iff ego is an isolate in graph g of dat.

Usage

1
is.isolate(dat, ego, g=1, diag=FALSE)

Arguments

dat

one or more input graphs.

ego

index of the vertex (or a vector of vertices) to check.

g

which graph(s) should be examined?

diag

boolean indicating whether adjacency matrix diagonals (i.e., loops) contain meaningful data.

Details

In the valued case, any non-zero edge value is taken as sufficient to establish a tie.

#Generate a test graph
g<-rgraph(20)
g[,4]<-0          #Create an isolate
g[4,]<-0

#Check for isolates
is.isolate(g,2)  #2 is almost surely not an isolate
is.isolate(g,4)  #4 is, by construction
