signed_edges_to_signed_nodes
(graph, prune_nodes=True, edge_signs={'neg': 1, 'pos': 0}, copy_edge_data=False)[source]¶ Convert a graph with signed edges to a graph with signed nodes.
Each pair of nodes linked by an edge in an input graph are represented as four nodes and two edges in the new graph. For example, an edge (a, b, 0), where a and b are nodes and 0 is a sign of an edge (positive), will be represented as edges ((a, 0), (b, 0)) and ((a, 1), (b, 1)), where (a, 0), (a, 1), (b, 0), (b, 1) are signed nodes. An edge (a, b, 1) with sign 1 (negative) will be represented as edges ((a, 0), (b, 1)) and ((a, 1), (b, 0)).
Parameters:  graph (networkx.MultiDiGraph) – Graph with signed edges to convert. Can have multiple edges between a pair of nodes.
 prune_nodes (Optional[bool]) – If True, iteratively prunes negative (with sign 1) nodes without predecessors.
 edge_signs (dict) – A dictionary representing the signing policy of incoming graph. The dictionary should have strings ‘pos’ and ‘neg’ as keys and integers as values.
 copy_edge_data (boolset(keys)) – Option for copying edge data as well from graph. If False (default), no edge data is copied (except sign). If True, all edge data is copied. If a set of keys is provided, only the keys appearing in the set will be copied, assuming the key is part of a nested dictionary.
