- connected_double_edge_swap(G, nswap=1)¶
Attempt nswap double-edge swaps in the graph G.
A double-edge swap removes two randomly chosen edges u-v and x-y and creates the new edges u-x and v-y:
u--v u v becomes | | x--y x y
If either the edge u-x or v-y already exist no swap is performed so the actual count of swapped edges is always <= nswap
G : graph
An undirected graph
nswap : integer (optional, default=1)
Number of double-edge swaps to perform
G : int
The number of successful swaps
The initial graph G must be connected, and the resulting graph is connected. The graph G is modified in place.
