This is related to my previous question about combining vertex attributes (thanks Tamas for the insight in figuring that out), but relates to operations on edges.
I have an undirected graph gA, with no loops and no multiple edges. Each edge of the graph has a vector of attributes, e.g. E(gA)$weight . I would like to be able to find the attributes of the edge that connects two specific vertices. Something similar would happen in the following very simplified R code snippet:
sum<0
for (i in 1:vcount(gA) {
for (j in 1: vcount(gA) {
sum < sum+ E(gA)[from(i) & to(j)]$weight
}
}
A couple of issues arise: Ideally, I would like to only do this when an edge exists between i and j exist, but I cannot seem to find a logic statement that returns either TRUE/FALSE. The second issue occurs when i=j where the result of E(gA)[from(i) & to(j)] is multiple values.
I think that the problem boils down to the question: given two vertices, can I determine if an edge exists between them and, if so, what is the index of the edge between them?
Thanks again for all the help,
David
