cutoff,network-method {Cascade}R Documentation

Choose the best cutoff

Description

Allows estimating the best cutoff, in function of the scale-freeness of the network. For a sequence of cutoff, the corresponding p-value is then calculated.

Usage

## S4 method for signature 'network'
cutoff(Omega, sequence = NULL, x_min = 0)

Arguments

Omega

a network object

sequence

(optional) a vector corresponding to the sequence of cutoffs that will be tested.

x_min

(optional) an integer ; only values over x_min are further retained for performing the test.

Value

A list containing two objects :

p.value

the p values corresponding to the sequence of cutoff

p.value.inter

the smoothed p value vector, using the loess function
