Growing random graph generation

Description

This function creates a random graph by simulating its stochastic evolution.

Usage

sample_growing(n, m = 1, directed = TRUE, citation = FALSE)

growing(...)

Arguments

n

Numeric constant, number of vertices in the graph.

m

Numeric constant, number of edges added in each time step.

directed

Logical, whether to create a directed graph.

citation

Logical. If TRUE a citation graph is created, ie. in each time step the added edges are originating from the new vertex.

...

Passed to sample_app.

Details

This is discrete time step model, in each time step a new vertex is added to the graph and m new edges are created. If citation is FALSE these edges are connecting two uniformly randomly chosen vertices, otherwise the edges are connecting new vertex to uniformly randomly chosen old vertices.

Value

A new graph object.
