control.simulate.ergm.ego(

  SAN = control.san(),
  simulate = control.simulate(),
  ...
)

Arguments

ppop.wt

Because each ego must be represented in the pseuodopopulation network an integral number of times, if the sample is weighted (or the target |N'| calculated from ppopsize and ppopsize.mul is not a multiple of the sample size), it may not be possible, for a finite |N'| to represent each ego exactly according to its relative weight, and ppop.wt controls how the fractional egos are allocated:

"round"

(default) Rather than treating ppopsize as a hard setting, calculate |N'| w_i / w_\cdot for each ego i and round it to the nearest integer. Then, the |N'| actually used will be the sum of these rounded freqencies.

"sample"

Resample in proportion to w_i.

SAN

A list of control parameters for san constructed by control.ergm, called to construct a pseudopopulation network consistent with the data.

simulate

A list of control parameters for simulate.formula constructed by control.simulate, called to simulate from the model fit.

...

Not used at this time.

Value

A list with arguments as components.
