"""Returns the growing network (GN) digraph with `n` nodes.
The GN graph is built by adding nodes one at a time with a link to one
previously added node. The target node for the link is chosen with
probability based on degree. The default attachment kernel is a linear
function of the degree of a node.
The graph is always a (directed) tree.
Parameters
----------
n : int
The number of nodes for the generated graph.
kernel : function
The attachment kernel.
create_using : NetworkX graph constructor, optional (default DiGraph)
Graph type to create. If graph instance, then cleared before populated.
seed : integer, random_state, or None (default)
Indicator of random number generation state.
See :ref:`Randomness<randomness>`.
Examples
--------
To create the undirected GN graph, use the :meth:`~DiGraph.to_directed`
method::
>>> D = nx.gn_graph(10) # the GN graph
>>> G = D.to_undirected() # the undirected version
To specify an attachment kernel, use the `kernel` keyword argument::
>>> D = nx.gn_graph(10, kernel=lambda x: x**1.5) # A_k = k^1.5

"""Returns a random `k`-out graph with uniform attachment.
A random `k`-out graph with uniform attachment is a multidigraph
generated by the following algorithm. For each node *u*, choose
`k` nodes *v* uniformly at random (with replacement). Add a
directed edge joining *u* to *v*.
Parameters
----------
n : int
The number of nodes in the returned graph.
k : int
The out-degree of each node in the returned graph.
self_loops : bool
If True, self-loops are allowed when generating the graph.
with_replacement : bool
If True, neighbors are chosen with replacement and the
returned graph will be a directed multigraph. Otherwise,
neighbors are chosen without replacement and the returned graph
will be a directed graph.
seed : integer, random_state, or None (default)
Indicator of random number generation state.

Returns
-------
NetworkX graph
A `k`-out-regular directed graph generated according to the
above algorithm. It will be a multigraph if and only if
`with_replacement` is True.
Raises
------
ValueError
If `with_replacement` is False and `k` is greater than
`n`.

Notes
-----
The return digraph or multidigraph may not be strongly connected, or

"""Returns a random `k`-out graph with preferential attachment.
A random `k`-out graph with preferential attachment is a
multidigraph generated by the following algorithm.
1. Begin with an empty digraph, and initially set each node to have
weight `alpha`.
2. Choose a node `u` with out-degree less than `k` uniformly at
random.
3. Choose a node `v` from with probability proportional to its
weight.
4. Add a directed edge from `u` to `v`, and increase the weight
of `v` by one.
5. If each node has out-degree `k`, halt, otherwise repeat from
step 2.
For more information on this model of random graph, see [1].
Parameters
----------
n : int
The number of nodes in the returned graph.
k : int
The out-degree of each node in the returned graph.
alpha : float
A positive :class:`float` representing the initial weight of
each vertex. A higher number means that in step 3 above, nodes
will be chosen more like a true uniformly random sample, and a
lower number means that nodes are more likely to be chosen as
their in-degree increases. If this parameter is not positive, a
:exc:`ValueError` is raised.
self_loops : bool
If True, self-loops are allowed when generating the graph.
seed : integer, random_state, or None (default)
Indicator of random number generation state.
See :ref:`Randomness<randomness>`.
Returns
-------
:class:`~networkx.classes.MultiDiGraph`
A `k`-out-regular multidigraph generated according to the above
algorithm.
Raises
------
ValueError
If `alpha` is not positive.
Notes
-----
The returned multidigraph may not be strongly connected, or even
weakly connected.
