##### Helper function for adding and deleting vertices

This is a helper function that simplifies adding and deleting vertices to/from graphs.

##### Usage

`vertex(...)`vertices(...)

##### Arguments

- ...
See details below.

##### Details

`vertices`

is an alias for `vertex`

.

When adding vertices via `+`

, all unnamed arguments are interpreted
as vertex names of the new vertices. Named arguments are interpreted as
vertex attributes for the new vertices.

When deleting vertices via `-`

, all arguments of `vertex`

(or
`vertices`

) are concatenated via `c()`

and passed to
`delete_vertices`

.

##### Value

A special object that can be used with together with igraph graphs and the plus and minus operators.
