These functions allow users to add and delete nodes and their attributes:

  • add_nodes() adds an additional number of nodes to network data.

  • delete_nodes() deletes nodes from network data.

  • add_node_attribute(), mutate(), or mutate_nodes() offer ways to add a vector of values to a network as a nodal attribute.

  • rename_nodes() and rename() rename nodal attributes.

  • bind_node_attributes() appends all nodal attributes from one network to another, and join_nodes() merges all nodal attributes from one network to another.

  • filter_nodes() subsets nodes based on some nodal attribute-related logical statement.

Note that while add_*()/delete_*() functions operate similarly as comparable {igraph} functions, mutate*(), bind*(), etc work like {tidyverse} or {dplyr}-style functions.

)

filter_nodes(.data, ..., .by)

Arguments

.data

An object of a manynet-consistent class:

  • matrix (adjacency or incidence) from {base} R

  • edgelist, a data frame from {base} R or tibble from {tibble}

  • igraph, from the {igraph} package

  • network, from the {network} package

  • tbl_graph, from the {tidygraph} package

nodes

The number of nodes to be added.

attribute

A named list to be added as tie or node attributes.

attr_name

Name of the new attribute in the resulting object.

vector

A vector of values for the new attribute.

...

Additional arguments.

object2

A second object to copy nodes or ties from.

.by

An attribute name to join objects by. By default, NULL.

join_type

A type of join to be used. Options are "full","left", "right", "inner".

Value

A data object of the same class as the function was given.
