arranges nodes in concentric circles according to a centrality index.

layout_with_centrality( g, cent, scale = TRUE, iter = 500, tol = 1e-04, tseq = seq(0, 1, 0.2) ) layout_igraph_centrality( g, cent, scale = TRUE, iter = 500, tol = 1e-04, tseq = seq(0, 1, 0.2), circular )

g | igraph object |
---|---|

cent | centrality scores |

scale | logical. should centrality scores be scaled to \([0,100]\)? (Default: TRUE) |

iter | number of iterations during stress optimization |

tol | stopping criterion for stress optimization |

tseq | numeric vector. increasing sequence of coefficients to combine regular stress and constraint stress. See details. |

circular | not used |

matrix of xy coordinates

The function optimizes a convex combination of regular stress and a constrained stress function which forces
nodes to be arranged on concentric circles. The vector `tseq`

is the sequence of parameters used for the convex combination.
In iteration i of the algorithm \(tseq[i]\) is used to combine regular and constraint stress as \((1-tseq[i])*stress_{regular}+tseq[i]*stress_{constraint}\). The sequence must be increasing, start at zero and end at one. The default setting should be a good choice for most graphs.

The layout_igraph_* function should not be used directly. It is only used as an argument for plotting with 'igraph'. 'ggraph' natively supports the layout.
