Description

create.multiplex is a function to create a multiplex network (Multiplex object) from a list of individual networks defined as igraph objects. See more details about multiplex networks below. If just one network is provided, a Multiplex object with one layer is therefore created (A monoplex network).

Further arguments passed to create.multiplex

LayersList

A list containing igraph objects describing monoplex networks in every element. We recommend to give names to the different networks (igraph objects).

Details

A multiplex network is a collection of layers (monoplex networks) sharing the same nodes, but in which the edges represent relationships of different nature. At least a list with one element, an igraph object, should be provided.

Value

A Multiplex object. It contains a list of the different graphs integrating the multiplex network, the names and number of its nodes and the number of layers.
