nint or iterable

If an integer, node labels are 0 to n with center 0. If an iterable of nodes, the center is the first. Warning: n is not checked for duplicates and if present the resulting graph may not be as desired. Make sure you have no duplicates.

create_usingNetworkX graph constructor, optional (default=nx.Graph)
