Arguments
MCMC.burnin.min, MCMC.burnin.max, MCMC.burnin.pval, MCMC.burnin.add 
Number of
MetropolisHastings steps per phase (formation and dissolution) per
time step used in simulation. By default, this is
determined adaptively by keeping track of increments in the Hamming
distance between the transitionedfrom network and the network being
sampled (formation network or dissolution network). Once
To use a fixed number of steps, set both 
MCMC.prop.weights.form, MCMC.prop.weights.diss 
Specifies the proposal distribution used in the MCMC
MetropolisHastings algorithm for formation and dissolution, respectively. Possible choices are 
MCMC.prop.args.form, MCMC.prop.args.diss 
An alternative, direct way of specifying additional arguments to proposals. 
MCMC.init.maxchanges 
Maximum number of toggles changes for which to allocate space. 
MCMC.packagenames 
Names of packages in which to look for change statistic functions in addition to those autodetected. This argument should not be needed outside of very strange setups. 
MCMC.init.maxedges 
Maximum number of edges expected in network. 
MCMC.burnin, MCMC.burnin.mul 
No longer used. See
