Disjoint union of graphs
The union of two or more graphs are created. The graphs are assumed to have disjoint vertex sets.

- Graph objects or lists of graph objects.
disjoint_union creates a union of two or more disjoint graphs.
Thus first the vertices in the second, third, etc. graphs are relabeled to
have completely disjoint graphs. Then a simple union is created. This
function can also be used via the %du% operator.
graph.disjont.union handles graph, vertex and edge attributes. In
particular, it merges vertex and edge attributes using the basic
function. For graphs that lack some vertex/edge attribute, the corresponding
values in the new graph are set to
NA. Graph attributes are simply
copied to the result. If this would result a name clash, then they are
renamed by adding suffixes: _1, _2, etc.
Note that if both graphs have vertex names (ie. a
attribute), then the concatenated vertex names might be non-unique in the
result. A warning is given if this happens.
An error is generated if some input graphs are directed and others are undirected.
