## Sample a pair of correlated G(n,p) random graphs

### Description

Sample a new graph by perturbing the adjacency matrix of a given graph and shuffling its vertices.

### Usage

sample_correlated_gnp_pair(n, corr, p, directed = FALSE, permutation = NULL)


### Arguments

 n Numeric scalar, the number of vertices for the sampled graphs. corr A scalar in the unit interval, the target Pearson correlation between the adjacency matrices of the original the generated graph (the adjacency matrix being used as a vector). p A numeric scalar, the probability of an edge between two vertices, it must in the open (0,1) interval. directed Logical scalar, whether to generate directed graphs. permutation A numeric vector, a permutation vector that is applied on the vertices of the first graph, to get the second graph. If NULL, the vertices are not permuted.

### Details

Please see the reference given below.

### Value

A list of two igraph objects, named graph1 and graph2, which are two graphs whose adjacency matrix entries are correlated with corr.
