This week, I got more familiar with the NetworkX package, which is concerned with graph based programming. It’s very powerful, but the complete GIANT network is far too large for it to run efficiently. Even the 0.1 threshold for edges has 41 million edges. However, Anna showed that the number of edges decreases exponentially as the threshold goes up. A careful balance will be needed as for the weight we put on these edges in our final program and how many we include.
