stergm.getMCMCsample
is a lowlevel internal function not intended to be called directly by end users. It collects a sample of networks and
returns the formation and dissolution statistics of each sample, along with
a toggle matrix of the changes needed from the original network to each
in the sample
1 2 3  stergm.getMCMCsample(nw, model.form, model.diss, model.mon,
MHproposal.form, MHproposal.diss,
eta.form, eta.diss, control, verbose)

nw 
a 
model.form 
a formation model, as returned by 
model.diss 
a dissolution model, as returned by 
model.mon 

MHproposal.form 
a list of parameters needed for MHproposals of the formations 
MHproposal.diss 
a list of parameters needed for MHproposals of the dissolutions 
eta.form 

eta.diss 

control 
list of control paramters, probably from 
verbose 
logical; whether this and other functions should be verbose 
This function is normally called inside simulate.stergm
to prepare inputs for the C sampling code and return its results
returns the MCMC sample as a list containing:
statsmatrix.form: the matrix of sampled statistics for 'model.form' RELATIVE TO INITIAL NETWORK
statsmatrix.diss: the matrix of sampled statistics for 'model.form' RELATIVE TO INITIAL NETWORK
statsmatrix.mon: the matrix of sampled statistics for 'model.mon' RELATIVE TO INITIAL NETWORK
newnetwork : the final network from the sampling process
changed : a toggle matrix, where the first column is the timestamp of the toggle and the 2nd and 3rd columns are the head & tail of the toggle; this is only returned if 'control'$changes is not NULL
maxchanges : the "MCMC Dyn workspace"; see 'maxchanges' in the input param list
simulate.stergm
