erdos_renyi_graph(n, p, seed=None, directed=False)¶
Returns a random graph, also known as an Erdős-Rényi graph or a binomial graph.
The model chooses each of the possible edges with probability
erdos_renyi_graph()are aliases of this function.
This algorithm runs in time. For sparse graphs (that is, for small values of ),
fast_gnp_random_graph()is a faster algorithm.
