mcxq - compute simple graph statistics

mcxq is not in actual fact a program. This manual page documents the behaviour and options of the mcx program when invoked in mode q. The options -h, --apropos, --version, -set, --nop, -progress <num> are accessible in all mcx modes. They are described in the mcx manual page.

mcxq [-imx <fname> (specify matrix input)] [-o <fname> (output file name)] [--edge (list simple edge statistics)] [--edge-list (list edge statistics per node)] [--dim (only list domain sizes)] [-h (print synopsis, exit)] [--apropos (print synopsis, exit)] [--version (print version, exit)]

mcxq computes a number of simple statistics derived from the input graph. Among these are the number of arcs, the node neighbour count average, standard deviation, and median, and the edge weight average, standard deviation, and median.

When instructed to, it can also compute other quantities related to the input graph. See below.


2m 2m -imx <fname> (input matrix)
The file name for input that is in mcl native matrix format.


2m 2m -o <fname> (output file name)
Set the name of the file where output should be written to.


2m 2m --edge (compute simple statistics)
This is the default setting. If any other option (e.g. --dim) is used, --edge has to be specified if this output mode is to be activated in parallel.


2m 2m --edge-list (compute simple statistics, node-wisel)
This outputs for each node its neighbour count and the average weight of the edges connecting that node with those neighbours.


2m 2m --dim (only list domain sizes)
This outputs the format (native interchange or native binary) and the dimensions of the encoded matrix.

mcxio(5), and mclfamily(7) for an overview of all the documentation and the utilities in the mcl family.
