def directed_edge_swap(G, *, nswap=1, max_tries=100, seed=None):
"""Swap three edges in a directed graph while keeping the node degrees fixed.
A directed edge swap swaps three edges such that a -> b -> c -> d becomes
a -> c -> b -> d. This pattern of swapping allows all possible states with the
same in- and out-degree distribution in a directed graph to be reached.
If the swap would create parallel edges (e.g. if a -> c already existed in the
previous example), another attempt is made to find a suitable trio of edges.
Parameters
----------
G : DiGraph
A directed graph
nswap : integer (optional, default=1)
Number of three-edge (directed) swaps to perform
max_tries : integer (optional, default=100)
Maximum number of attempts to swap edges
seed : integer, random_state, or None (default)
Indicator of random number generation state.
See :ref:`Randomness<randomness>`.
Returns
-------
G : DiGraph
The graph after the edges are swapped.
Raises
------
NetworkXError
If `G` is not directed, or
If nswap > max_tries, or
If there are fewer than 4 nodes or 3 edges in `G`.
NetworkXAlgorithmError
If the number of swap attempts exceeds `max_tries` before `nswap` swaps are made
Notes
-----
Does not enforce any connectivity constraints.
The graph G is modified in place.
A later swap is allowed to undo a previous swap.

def connected_double_edge_swap(G, nswap=1, _window_threshold=3, seed=None):
"""Attempts the specified number of 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 `(u, x)` or `(v, y)` already exist, then no swap is performed
so the actual number of swapped edges is always *at most* `nswap`.
Parameters
----------
G : graph
An undirected graph
nswap : integer (optional, default=1)
Number of double-edge swaps to perform
_window_threshold : integer
The window size below which connectedness of the graph will be checked
after each swap.
The "window" in this function is a dynamically updated integer that
represents the number of swap attempts to make before checking if the
graph remains connected. It is an optimization used to decrease the
running time of the algorithm in exchange for increased complexity of
implementation.
If the window size is below this threshold, then the algorithm checks
after each swap if the graph remains connected by checking if there is a
path joining the two nodes whose edge was just removed. If the window
size is above this threshold, then the algorithm performs do all the
swaps in the window and only then check if the graph is still connected.
seed : integer, random_state, or None (default)
Indicator of random number generation state.
See :ref:`Randomness<randomness>`.
Returns
-------
int
The number of successful swaps
Raises
------
NetworkXError
If the input graph is not connected, or if the graph has fewer than four
nodes.
Notes
-----
The initial graph `G` must be connected, and the resulting graph is
connected. The graph `G` is modified in place.
