Optimal edge curvature when plotting graphs

Description

If graphs have multiple edges, then drawing them as straight lines does not show them when plotting the graphs; they will be on top of each other. One solution is to bend the edges, with diffenent curvature, so that all of them are visible.

Usage

curve_multiple(graph, start = 0.5)

Arguments

graph

The input graph.

start

The curvature at the two extreme edges. All edges will have a curvature between -start and start, spaced equally.

Details

curve_multiple calculates the optimal edge.curved vector for plotting a graph with multiple edges, so that all edges are visible.

Value

A numeric vector, its length is the number of edges in the graph.
