strength

0th

Percentile

Strength or weighted vertex degree

Summing up the edge weights of the adjacent edges for each vertex.

Keywords
graphs
Usage
strength(graph, vids = V(graph), mode = c("all", "out", "in", "total"),
  loops = TRUE, weights = NULL)
Arguments
graph
The input graph.
vids
The vertices for which the strength will be calculated.
mode
Character string, out for out-degree, in for in-degree or all for the sum of the two. For undirected graphs this argument is ignored.
loops
Logical; whether the loop edges are also counted.
weights
Weight vector. If the graph has a weight edge attribute, then this is used by default. If the graph does not have a weight edge attribute and this argument is NULL, then a warning is given and
Value

  • A numeric vector giving the strength of the vertices.
