A model for Multilayer/Multiplex/Complex Networks

It is still very much work in progress so beware of updates as your code might break. To visualise a multilayer network, check out mplexviz-ngraph.

This module implements the multilayer network framework put forward here:

Kivelä et al. 2014. Multilayer Networks. Journal of Complex Networks (2014) 2, 203-271. DOI:10.1093/comnet/cnu016

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install mplexnet

var mplexnet = require('mplexnet');
var Network = mplexnet.Network;

Documentation

Create the input for the network:

 
// Input parsed from csv file of edges 
var input = {};
input.data = 'source,l1,l2,target,l1,l2\n1,A,X,2,A,X\n1,A,X,1,B,X\n1,A,X,4,B,X\n1,B,X,1,B,Y\n1,B,X,3,B,X\n1,B,X,4,B,X\n3,B,X,4,B,X\n4,B,X,3,A,Y\n3,A,Y,3,A,X\n3,A,Y,2,A,Y';
 
// default options for network model 
input.options = {
    /*  If you not specify a format,
        the model will try to guess it from the input
     */
    inputFormat: 'csv',
    inputFileDelimiter: ',',
    sourceFieldLabel: 'source',
    targetFieldLabel: 'target',
    loglevel: 0
};
 

Then instantiate the network model

var mplexnet = require('mplexnet');
var Network = mplexnet.Network;
// createNetwork a new network 
var myNetwork = new Network(input);
