Construct the adjacency matrix for a topic graph

Share:

Description

The lasso is used to determine which edges are present in a topic graph. The original R code was written by David M. Blei and co-authors and is available together with the C code for fitting the CTM.

Usage

1
build_graph(x, lambda, and = TRUE)

Arguments

x

Object of class "CTM".

lambda

Numeric in [0,1] indicating the relative bound on the L1-norm of the parameters.

and

Logical; if TRUE the graph is computed by taking the intersection of the neighbors, otherwise the union is determined.

Value

Returns an adjacency matrix for the topics versus topics graph.
