simulateNetwork {EDISON}  R Documentation 
This function generates a random network with structure changepoints (or takes one as input) and simulated data from it using a regression model.
simulateNetwork(l = 100, min_phase_length = 10, k_bar = 10, q = 10,
lambda_2 = 0.45, noise = 0.25, net = NULL, lambda_3 = 2,
spacing = 0, gauss_weights = FALSE, same = FALSE,
changes = "sequential", fixed = FALSE, cps = NULL, saveFile = NULL)
l 
Length of the time series. 
min_phase_length 
Minimum segment length. 
k_bar 
Maximum number of changepoints. 
q 
Number of nodes. 
lambda_2 
Average number of parents for each node in the network (parameter for a Poisson distribution). 
noise 
Standard deviation of the Gaussian observation noise. Can be constant, or segment specific (in which case the number of changepoints needs to be fixed and the noise needs to be a vector of the same length). 
net 
Input network, can be 
lambda_3 
Average number of structure changes between two segments (parameter for a Poisson distribution).

A list with elements:
sim_data 
A matrix of length NumNodes by NumTimepoints containing the simulated data from the regression model. 
epsilon 
Changepoint vector. 
k 
Number of changepoints. 
network 
The network, a list of length NumSegs, where each element is a NumNodes by NumNodes matrix. 
noise 
The standard deviation of the applied Gaussian noise.
