er_np
(n, p, directed=False, loops=False, wt=1, wtargs=None, dc=None, dc_kws={})[source]¶ Samples a Erdos Renyi (n, p) graph with specified edge probability.
Erdos Renyi (n, p) graph is a simple graph with n vertices and a probability p of edges being connected.
Parameters:  n: int
Number of vertices
 p: float
Probability of an edge existing between two vertices, between 0 and 1.
 directed: boolean, optional (default=False)
If False, output adjacency matrix will be symmetric. Otherwise, output adjacency matrix will be asymmetric.
 loops: boolean, optional (default=False)
If False, no edges will be sampled in the diagonal. Otherwise, edges are sampled in the diagonal.
 wt: object, optional (default=1)
Weight function for each of the edges, taking only a size argument. This weight function will be randomly assigned for selected edges. If 1, graph produced is binary.
 wtargs: dictionary, optional (default=None)
Optional arguments for parameters that can be passed to weight function
wt
. dc: function or arraylike, shape (n_vertices)
dc is used to generate a degreecorrected Erdos Renyi Model in which each node in the graph has a parameter to specify its expected degree relative to other nodes.
 function:
 should generate a nonnegative number to be used as a degree correction to create a heterogenous degree distribution. A weight will be generated for each vertex, normalized so that the sum of weights is 1.
 arraylike of scalars, shape (n_vertices):
 The weights should sum to 1; otherwise, they will be normalized and a warning will be thrown. The scalar associated with each vertex is the node's relative expected degree.
 dc_kws: dictionary
Ignored if dc is none or array of scalar. If dc is a function, dc_kws corresponds to its named arguments. If not specified, in either case all functions will assume their default parameters.
Returns:  A : ndarray, shape (n, n)
Sampled adjacency matrix

Erdos Renyi (n, m) graph is a simple graph with n vertices and exactly m number of total edges.

Examples
>>> n = 100 >>> m = 20 >>> wt = np.random.uniform >>> wtargs = dict(low=1, high=2) >>> A = weighted_er_nm(n, m, wt=wt, wtargs=wtargs)

sbm
(n, p, directed=False, loops=False, wt=1, wtargs=None, dc=None, dc_kws={})[source]¶ Samples a graph from the stochastic block model (SBM).
SBM produces a graph with specified communities, in which each community can have different sizes and edge probabilities.
Parameters:  n: list of int, shape (n_communities)
Number of vertices in each community. Communities are assigned n[0], n[1], ...
 p: arraylike, shape (n_communities, n_communities)
Probability of an edge between each of the communities, where p[i, j] indicates the probability of a connection between edges in communities [i, j]. 0 < p[i, j] < 1 for all i, j.
 directed: boolean, optional (default=False)
If False, output adjacency matrix will be symmetric. Otherwise, output adjacency matrix will be asymmetric.
 loops: boolean, optional (default=False)
If False, no edges will be sampled in the diagonal. Otherwise, edges are sampled in the diagonal.
 wt: object or arraylike, shape (n_communities, n_communities)
if Wt is an object, a weight function to use globally over the sbm for assigning weights. 1 indicates to produce a binary graph. If Wt is an arraylike, a weight function for each of the edge communities. Wt[i, j] corresponds to the weight function between communities i and j. If the entry is a function, should accept an argument for size. An entry of Wt[i, j] = 1 will produce a binary subgraph over the i, j community.
 wtargs: dictionary or arraylike, shape (n_communities, n_communities)
if Wt is an object, Wtargs corresponds to the trailing arguments to pass to the weight function. If Wt is an arraylike, Wtargs[i, j] corresponds to trailing arguments to pass to Wt[i, j].
 dc: function or arraylike, shape (n_vertices) or (n_communities), optional
dc is used to generate a degreecorrected stochastic block model [1] in which each node in the graph has a parameter to specify its expected degree relative to other nodes within its community.
 function:
 should generate a nonnegative number to be used as a degree correction to create a heterogenous degree distribution. A weight will be generated for each vertex, normalized so that the sum of weights in each block is 1.
 arraylike of functions, shape (n_communities):
 Each function will generate the degree distribution for its respective community.
 arraylike of scalars, shape (n_vertices):
 The weights in each block should sum to 1; otherwise, they will be normalized and a warning will be thrown. The scalar associated with each vertex is the node's relative expected degree within its community.
 dc_kws: dictionary or arraylike, shape (n_communities), optional
Ignored if dc is none or array of scalar. If dc is a function, dc_kws corresponds to its named arguments. If dc is an arraylike of functions, dc_kws should be an arraylike, shape (n_communities), of dictionary. Each dictionary is the named arguments for the corresponding function for that community. If not specified, in either case all functions will assume their default parameters.
Returns:  A: ndarray, shape (sum(n), sum(n))
Sampled adjacency matrix

rdpg
(X, Y=None, rescale=True, directed=False, loops=True, wt=1, wtargs=None)[source]¶ Samples a random graph based on the latent positions in X (and optionally in Y)
If only X \(\in\mathbb{R}^{n\times d}\) is given, the P matrix is calculated as \(P = XX^T\). If X, Y \(\in\mathbb{R}^{n\times d}\) is given, then \(P = XY^T\). These operations correspond to the dot products between a set of latent positions, so each row in X or Y represents the latent positions in \(\mathbb{R}^{d}\) for a single vertex in the random graph Note that this function may also rescale or clip the resulting P matrix to get probabilities between 0 and 1, or remove loops. A binary random graph is then sampled from the P matrix described by X (and possibly Y).
Parameters:  X: np.ndarray, shape (n_vertices, n_dimensions)
latent position from which to generate a P matrix if Y is given, interpreted as the left latent position
 Y: np.ndarray, shape (n_vertices, n_dimensions) or None, optional
right latent position from which to generate a P matrix
 rescale: boolean, optional (default=True)
when rescale is True, will subtract the minimum value in P (if it is below 0) and divide by the maximum (if it is above 1) to ensure that P has entries between 0 and 1. If False, elements of P outside of [0, 1] will be clipped
 directed: boolean, optional (default=False)
If False, output adjacency matrix will be symmetric. Otherwise, output adjacency matrix will be asymmetric.
 loops: boolean, optional (default=True)
If False, no edges will be sampled in the diagonal. Diagonal elements in P matrix are removed prior to rescaling (see above) which may affect behavior. Otherwise, edges are sampled in the diagonal.
 wt: object, optional (default=1)
Weight function for each of the edges, taking only a size argument. This weight function will be randomly assigned for selected edges. If 1, graph produced is binary.
 wtargs: dictionary, optional (default=None)
Optional arguments for parameters that can be passed to weight function
wt
.
Returns:  A: ndarray (n_vertices, n_vertices)
A matrix representing the probabilities of connections between vertices in a random graph based on their latent positions
