"""Combine graphs G and H. The names of nodes must be unique.
A name collision between the graphs will raise an exception.
A renaming facility is provided to avoid name collisions.
Parameters
----------
G, H : graph
A NetworkX graph
rename : iterable , optional
Node names of G and H can be changed by specifying the tuple
rename=('G-','H-') (for example). Node "u" in G is then renamed
"G-u" and "v" in H is renamed "H-v".
Returns
-------
U : A union graph with the same type as G.

compose
:func:`~networkx.Graph.update`
disjoint_union
Notes
-----
To combine graphs that have common nodes, consider compose(G, H)
or the method, Graph.update().
disjoint_union() is similar to union() except that it avoids name clashes
by relabeling the nodes with sequential integers.
Edge and node attributes are propagated from G and H to the union graph.
Graph attributes are also propagated, but if they are present in both G and H,
then the value from H is used.
Examples
--------
>>> G = nx.Graph([(0, 1), (0, 2), (1, 2)])
>>> H = nx.Graph([(0, 1), (0, 3), (1, 3), (1, 2)])
>>> U = nx.union(G, H, rename=("G", "H"))

union
compose
:func:`~networkx.Graph.update`
Notes
-----
A new graph is created, of the same class as G. It is recommended
that G and H be either both directed or both undirected.
The nodes of G are relabeled 0 to len(G)-1, and the nodes of H are
relabeled len(G) to len(G)+len(H)-1.
Renumbering forces G and H to be disjoint, so no exception is ever raised for a name collision.
To preserve the check for common nodes, use union().
Edge and node attributes are propagated from G and H to the union graph.
Graph attributes are also propagated, but if they are present in both G and H,
then the value from H is used.

def compose(G, H):
"""Compose graph G with H by combining nodes and edges into a single graph.
The node sets and edges sets do not need to be disjoint.
Composing preserves the attributes of nodes and edges.
Attribute values from H take precedent over attribute values from G.
Parameters
----------
G, H : graph
A NetworkX graph
Returns
-------
C: A new graph with the same type as G
See Also
--------
:func:`~networkx.Graph.update`
union
disjoint_union
Notes
-----
It is recommended that G and H be either both directed or both undirected.
For MultiGraphs, the edges are identified by incident nodes AND edge-key.
This can cause surprises (i.e., edge `(1, 2)` may or may not be the same
in two graphs) if you use MultiGraph without keeping track of edge keys.
If combining the attributes of common nodes is not desired, consider union(),
which raises an exception for name collisions.
Examples
--------
>>> G = nx.Graph([(0, 1), (0, 2)])
>>> H = nx.Graph([(0, 1), (1, 2)])
>>> R = nx.compose(G, H)
>>> R.nodes
NodeView((0, 1, 2))
>>> R.edges
EdgeView([(0, 1), (0, 2), (1, 2)])
By default, the attributes from `H` take precedent over attributes from `G`.
If you prefer another way of combining attributes, you can update them after the compose operation:
>>> G = nx.Graph([(0, 1, {'weight': 2.0}), (3, 0, {'weight': 100.0})])
>>> H = nx.Graph([(0, 1, {'weight': 10.0}), (1, 2, {'weight': -1.0})])
>>> nx.set_node_attributes(G, {0: 'dark', 1: 'light', 3: 'black'}, name='color')
>>> nx.set_node_attributes(H, {0: 'green', 1: 'orange', 2: 'yellow'}, name='color')
>>> GcomposeH = nx.compose(G, H)
Normally, color attribute values of nodes of GcomposeH come from H. We can workaround this as follows:
>>> node_data = {n: G.nodes[n]['color'] + " " + H.nodes[n]['color'] for n in G.nodes & H.nodes}
>>> nx.set_node_attributes(GcomposeH, node_data, 'color')
>>> print(GcomposeH.nodes[0]['color'])
dark green
>>> print(GcomposeH.nodes[3]['color'])
black
Similarly, we can update edge attributes after the compose operation in a way we prefer:
>>> edge_data = {e: G.edges[e]['weight'] * H.edges[e]['weight'] for e in G.edges & H.edges}
>>> nx.set_edge_attributes(GcomposeH, edge_data, 'weight')
>>> print(GcomposeH.edges[(0, 1)]['weight'])
20.0
>>> print(GcomposeH.edges[(3, 0)]['weight'])
100.0

def full_join(G, H, rename=(None, None)):
"""Returns the full join of graphs G and H.
Full join is the union of G and H in which all edges between
G and H are added.
The node sets of G and H must be disjoint,
otherwise an exception is raised.
Parameters
----------
G, H : graph
A NetworkX graph
rename : tuple , default=(None, None)
Node names of G and H can be changed by specifying the tuple
rename=('G-','H-') (for example). Node "u" in G is then renamed
"G-u" and "v" in H is renamed "H-v".
Returns
-------
U : The full join graph with the same type as G.
Notes
-----
It is recommended that G and H be either both directed or both undirected.
If G is directed, then edges from G to H are added as well as from H to G.
Note that full_join() does not produce parallel edges for MultiGraphs.
The full join operation of graphs G and H is the same as getting
their complement, performing a disjoint union, and finally getting
the complement of the resulting graph.
Graph, edge, and node attributes are propagated from G and H
to the union graph. If a graph attribute is present in both
G and H the value from H is used.

--------
>>> G = nx.Graph([(0, 1), (0, 2)])
