mplex: an R package for multiplex networks
mplex is a package that implement descriptive tools and function to handle multiplex networks into the R framework. Multiplex networks are composed by a multiplicity of overlapping layers that capture different types of connection between nodes and account for both relationships within a same layer and relationships between a same node located in different layers of the overall network. Some of the most common descriptors, clustering indices and centrality measures can be calculated starting from a set of nodes and layers given in input by the user.
# The easiest way to get mplex is to install directly from GitHub: # install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("achab94/mplex")
