CHoeppke/maxnodf: Approximate NODF-maximising graphs

This package contains functions to generate graphs that maximise the NODF metric for a given number of rows, columns and links. As nestedness in ecological networks depends on the size of the networks we require normalisation to make them comparable [1]. We offer three highly optimised algorithms to find the optimising graphs so that users can choose an appropriate trade off between computation time and NODF value for the task at hand.
