is_valid_joint_degree
(joint_degrees)[source]¶ Checks whether the given joint degree dictionary is realizable.
A joint degree dictionary is a dictionary of dictionaries, in which entry
joint_degrees[k][l]
is an integer representing the number of edges joining nodes of degree k with nodes of degree l. Such a dictionary is realizable as a simple graph if and only if the following conditions are satisfied.each entry must be an integer,
the total number of nodes of degree k, computed by
sum(joint_degrees[k].values()) / k
, must be an integer,the total number of edges joining nodes of degree k with nodes of degree l cannot exceed the total number of possible edges,
each diagonal entry
joint_degrees[k][k]
must be even (this is a convention assumed by thejoint_degree_graph()
function).
 Parameters
joint_degrees (dictionary of dictionary of integers) – A joint degree dictionary in which entry
joint_degrees[k][l]
is the number of edges joining nodes of degree k with nodes of degree l. Returns
Whether the given joint degree dictionary is realizable as a simple graph.
 Return type
