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

  • add_ties() adds additional ties to network data

  • delete_ties() deletes ties from network data

  • add_tie_attribute() and mutate_ties() offer ways to add a vector of values to a network as a tie attribute.

  • rename_ties() renames tie attributes.

  • bind_ties() appends the tie data from two networks and join_ties() merges ties from two networks, adding a tie attribute identifying the newly added ties.

  • filter_ties() subsets ties based on some tie 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.

Arguments

.data

An object of a manynet-consistent class:

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

  • tbl_graph, from the {tidygraph} package

ties

The number of ties to be added or an even list of ties.

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
