Type of Software
This software is a set of NetworkX additions for the creation of graphs to model networks.
- Graphicality Testing -- This is a set of routines for testing if a sequence is graphical, multi-graphical, or pseudo-graphical. All tests are performed in linear time. It also tests whether an input and output sequence has a directed realization. These routines are independent of NetworkX.
- Bipartite Graph Generator -- This is a routine for generating a bipartite graph whose projection is a given graph. Based on the algorithm of Guillaume and Latapy.
- Sequential Graph Generator -- A routine for sequentially generating a graph from a given degree sequence. Based on the algorithm of Blitzstein and Diaconis.
- Markov Graph Generator -- Set of helper routines for generating a graph from a given degree sequence using a Markov sampling approach. Based on the paper of Gkantsidis, Mihail, and Zegura.
- Network Modeling Toolkit -- A graphical front end for creating network models.
