## Is a degree sequence graphical?

### Description

Determine whether the given vertex degrees (in- and out-degrees for directed graphs) can be realized in a graph.

### Usage

is_graphical(
out.deg,
in.deg = NULL,
allowed.edge.types = c("simple", "loops", "multi", "all")
)


### Arguments

 out.deg Integer vector, the degree sequence for undirected graphs, or the out-degree sequence for directed graphs. in.deg NULL or an integer vector. For undirected graphs, it should be NULL. For directed graphs it specifies the in-degrees. allowed.edge.types The allowed edge types in the graph. ‘simple’ means that neither loop nor multiple edges are allowed (i.e. the graph must be simple). ‘loops’ means that loop edges are allowed but mutiple edges are not. ‘multi’ means that multiple edges are allowed but loop edges are not. ‘all’ means that both loop edges and multiple edges are allowed.

### Details

The classical concept of graphicality assumes simple graphs. This function can perform the check also when self-loops, multi-edges, or both are allowed in the graph.

### Value

A logical scalar.
