Creates a Siena dependent variable: either a network, created from a matrix
or array or list of sparse matrix of triples; or a behavior variable,
created from a matrix.

`sienaDependent()`

and `sienaNet()`

are identical functions;
the second name was used from the start of the `RSiena`

package,
but the first name indicates more precisely the purpose of this function.

1 2 3 4 5 |

`netarray` |
matrix (type="behavior" only) or (for the other types) array of values or list of sparse matrices of type "dgTMatrix". |

`type` |
type of dependent variable, default "oneMode". |

`nodeSet` |
character string naming the appropriate node set. For a bipartite network, a vector containing 2 character strings: "rows" first, then "columns". |

`sparse` |
logical: TRUE indicates the data is in sparse matrix format, FALSE otherwise. |

`allowOnly` |
logical: If TRUE, it will be detected when between any
two consecutive waves the changes are non-decreasing or non-increasing,
and if this is the case, this will also be a constraint for the
simulations between these two waves.
This is done by means of the internal parameters For normal operation when this is the case for all periods, usually
TRUE is the appropriate option. When it is only the case for some of the
periods, and for data sets that will be part of a multi-group object

Adds attributes so that the array or list of matrices can be used in a Siena model fit.

An object of class "sienaDependent". An array or (networks only) a list of sparse matrices with attributes:

`netdims` |
Dimensions of the network or behavior variable: senders, receivers (1 for behavior), periods |

`type` |
oneMode, bipartite or behavior |

`sparse` |
Boolean: whether the network is given as a list of sparse matrices or not |

`nodeSet` |
Character string with name(s) of node set(s) |

`allowOnly` |
The value of the |

mynet1 <- sienaDependent(array(c(s501, s502, s503), dim=c(50, 50, 3)))
mybeh <- sienaDependent(s50a, type="behavior")
## note that the following example works although the node sets do not yet exist!

## sparse matrix input
## To show this, we first go back from the adjacency matrices to edgelists.
## The manual shows one way to do this.
## Another way is to use the sparse matrix representation which internally
## indeed is an edge list:
library(Matrix)
tmps501 <- as(Matrix(s501), "dgTMatrix")
tmps502 <- as(Matrix(s502), "dgTMatrix")
tmps503 <- as(Matrix(s503), "dgTMatrix")
## If you are interested in the internal structure of these sparse matrices,
## you can request
str(tmps501)
## Slot @i is the row, @j is the column, and @x the value;
## here the values all are 1.
## The edge lists now are created as matrices in the following way,
## where the columns are sender, receiver, tie value, and wave:
mymat1 <- cbind(tmps501@i + 1, tmps501@j + 1, 1, 1)
mymat2 <- cbind(tmps502@i + 1, tmps502@j + 1, 1, 2)
mymat3 <- cbind(tmps503@i + 1, tmps503@j + 1, 1, 3)
mymat <- rbind(mymat1, mymat2, mymat3)
## mymat is an edge list and includes all 3 waves.
## The edge lists do not contain information about the number of nodes,
## so that has to be supplied additionally; here it is 50:
mymatlist <- by( mymat, mymat[, 4], function(x)
spMatrix(50, 50, x[, 1], x[, 2], x[, 3]) )
mynet4 <- sienaDependent(mymatlist)
## or alternatively
mymat1 <- mymat[mymat[, 4] == 1, ]
mymat2 <- mymat[mymat[, 4] == 2, ]
mymat3 <- mymat[mymat[, 4] == 3, ]
mymat1s <- spMatrix(50, 50, mymat1[, 1], mymat1[, 2], mymat1[, 3])
mymat2s <- spMatrix(50, 50, mymat2[, 1], mymat2[, 2], mymat2[, 3])
mymat3s <- spMatrix(50, 50, mymat3[, 1], mymat3[, 2], mymat3[, 3])
mynet4 <- sienaDependent(list(mymat1s, mymat2s, mymat3s))
