Sample an Erdos-Renyi graph

erdos_renyi(n, p = NULL, avg_deg = NULL, directed = FALSE, ...)

erdos_renyi_params(n, p = NULL, avg_deg = NULL, directed = FALSE,
...)

## Arguments

n Number of nodes in graph. Probability of an edge between any two nodes. You must specify either p or avg_deg. If you do not specify p, uses avg_deg / n. Desired average out degree. When specified, rescales sampling probabilities to achieve the desired average out degree. Defaults to NULL, such that there is no rescaling. Defaults to FALSE for Erdos-Renyi graphs. The default in the more general fastRG() is TRUE. Arguments passed on to fastRG XAn n by k_1 matrix. SA k_1 by k_2 matrix. YA d by k_2 matrix. Defaults to X. avg_degWhen specified, rescales parameter such that the expected degree is avg_deg in the Poisson multi-graph. When poisson_edges = FALSE, the resulting graph will have lower a average degree than avg_deg due to lack of multi-edges. When the graph is sparse, the expected number of edges for the Poisson multi-graph and Bernoulli graph are nearly the same. Defaults to NULL, such that no scaling occurs. simpleWhen TRUE, indicates that you want to work with undirected graphs where self-loops and multi-edges are prohibited. Accomplishes this by setting directed = FALSE, allow_self_loops = FALSE, and poisson_edges = FALSE, and then ignoring arguments directed, allow_self_loops and poisson_edges. Defaults to FALSE. poisson_edgesLogical indicating whether or not multi-edges are allowed. Defaults to TRUE, which keeps multi-edges and produces a multi-graph. When FALSE, only single edges are allowed, resulting in a graph. See details for some additional comments. Effected by simple argument. directedLogical indicating whether or not the graph should be directed. Default is directed = TRUE. When directed = FALSE, symmetrizes S internally. When X = Y (which is the default when no Y is specified), this results in a symmetric adjacency matrix as output. When avg_deg is specified and the desired graph is directed, the average degree scaling is on the out-degree of each node (or the row sums if you prefer to think in terms of the adjacency matrix). Effected by the simple argument. allow_self_loopsLogical indicating whether edges are allowed from a node back to itself. Defaults to TRUE. When FALSE, sampling proceeds normally, and then self-loops are removed after sampling is completed. Effected by the simple argument. return_edge_listLogical indicating whether to return an edgelist rather than an adjacency matrix. Defaults to FALSE.
