Use this if you are using igraph from R

Place vertices on the plane using the force-directed layout algorithm by Fruchterman and Reingold.

layout_with_fr(graph, coords = NULL, dim = 2, niter = 500, start.temp = sqrt(vcount(graph)), grid = c("auto", "grid", "nogrid"), weights = NULL, minx = NULL, maxx = NULL, miny = NULL, maxy = NULL, minz = NULL, maxz = NULL, coolexp, maxdelta, area, repulserad, maxiter) with_fr(...)

`graph` |
The graph to lay out. Edge directions are ignored. |

`coords` |
Optional starting positions for the vertices. If this argument
is not |

`dim` |
Integer scalar, 2 or 3, the dimension of the layout. Two dimensional layouts are places on a plane, three dimensional ones in the 3d space. |

`niter` |
Integer scalar, the number of iterations to perform. |

`start.temp` |
Real scalar, the start temperature. This is the maximum amount of movement alloved along one axis, within one step, for a vertex. Currently it is decreased linearly to zero during the iteration. |

`grid` |
Character scalar, whether to use the faster, but less accurate grid based implementation of the algorithm. By default (“auto”), the grid-based implementation is used if the graph has more than one thousand vertices. |

`weights` |
A vector giving edge weights. The |

`minx` |
If not |

`maxx` |
Similar to |

`miny` |
Similar to |

`maxy` |
Similar to |

`minz` |
Similar to |

`maxz` |
Similar to |

`coolexp, maxdelta, area, repulserad` |
These arguments are not supported from igraph version 0.8.0 and are ignored (with a warning). |

`maxiter` |
A deprecated synonym of |

`...` |
Passed to |

See the referenced paper below for the details of the algorithm.

This function was rewritten from scratch in igraph version 0.8.0.

A two- or three-column matrix, each row giving the coordinates of a vertex, according to the ids of the vertex ids.
