recSplitConnMat {ConnMatTools} | R Documentation |

## Recursively subdivides a set of subpoplations

### Description

This funtion recursively splits each subpopulation of a list of subpopulations until none of the subpopulations can be split further to improve the minimization.

### Usage

```
recSplitConnMat(subpops.lst, conn.mat, beta, ...)
```

### Arguments

`subpops.lst` |
A list whose elements are vectors of indices for each subpopulation. See |

`conn.mat` |
A square connectivity matrix. This matrix has typically been normalized and made symmetric prior to using this function. |

`beta` |
Controls degree of splitting of connectivity matrix, with larger values generating more subpopulations. |

`...` |
further arguments to be passed to |
