Create an extended chordal ring graph


make_chordal_ring creates an extended chordal ring. An extended chordal ring is regular graph, each node has the same degree. It can be obtained from a simple ring by adding some extra edges specified by a matrix. Let p denote the number of columns in the ‘W’ matrix. The extra edges of vertex i are added according to column i mod p in ‘W’. The number of extra edges is the number of rows in ‘W’: for each row j an edge i->i+w[ij] is added if i+w[ij] is less than the number of total nodes.
