# graph_from_adj_list

##### Create graphs from adjacency lists

An adjacency list is a list of numeric vectors, containing the neighbor vertices for each vertex. This function creates an igraph graph object from such a list.

- Keywords
- graphs

##### Usage

```
graph_from_adj_list(adjlist, mode = c("out", "in", "all", "total"),
duplicate = TRUE)
```

##### Arguments

- adjlist
The adjacency list. It should be consistent, i.e. the maximum throughout all vectors in the list must be less than the number of vectors (=the number of vertices in the graph). Note that the list is expected to be 0-indexed.

- mode
Character scalar, it specifies whether the graph to create is undirected (‘all’ or ‘total’) or directed; and in the latter case, whether it contains the outgoing (‘out’) or the incoming (‘in’) neighbors of the vertices.

- duplicate
Logical scalar. For undirected graphs it gives whether edges are included in the list twice. E.g. if it is

`TRUE`

then for an undirected`{A,B}`

edge`graph_from_adj_list`

expects`A`

included in the neighbors of`B`

and`B`

to be included in the neighbors of`A`

.This argument is ignored if

`mode`

is`out`

or`in`

.

##### Details

Adjacency lists are handy if you intend to do many (small) modifications to a graph. In this case adjacency lists are more efficient than igraph graphs.

The idea is that you convert your graph to an adjacency list by
`as_adj_list`

, do your modifications to the graphs and finally
create again an igraph graph by calling `graph_from_adj_list`

.

##### Value

An igraph graph object.

##### Examples

```
# NOT RUN {
## Directed
g <- make_ring(10, dir=TRUE)
al <- as_adj_list(g, mode="out")
g2 <- graph_from_adj_list(al)
graph.isomorphic(g, g2)
## Undirected
g <- make_ring(10)
al <- as_adj_list(g)
g2 <- graph_from_adj_list(al, mode="all")
graph.isomorphic(g, g2)
ecount(g2)
g3 <- graph_from_adj_list(al, mode="all", duplicate=FALSE)
ecount(g3)
which_multiple(g3)
# }
```
