pylibcugraph.node2vec(ResourceHandle resource_handle, _GPUGraph graph, seed_array, size_t max_depth, bool_t compress_result, double p, double q)[source]#

Computes random walks under node2vec sampling procedure.


Handle to the underlying device resources needed for referencing data and running algorithms.


The input graph.

seed_array: device array type

Device array containing the pointer to the array of seed vertices.


Maximum number of vertices in generated path


If true, the paths are unpadded and a third return device array contains the sizes for each path, otherwise the paths are padded and the third return device array is empty.


The return factor p represents the likelihood of backtracking to a node in the walk. A higher value (> max(q, 1)) makes it less likely to sample a previously visited node, while a lower value (< min(q, 1)) would make it more likely to backtrack, making the walk more “local”.


The in-out factor q represents the likelihood of visiting nodes closer or further from the outgoing node. If q > 1, the random walk is likelier to visit nodes closer to the outgoing node. If q < 1, the random walk is likelier to visit nodes further from the outgoing node.

A tuple of device arrays, where the first item in the tuple is a device
array containing the compressed paths, the second item is a device
array containing the corresponding weights for each edge traversed in
each path, and the third item is a device array containing the sizes
for each of the compressed paths, if compress_result is True.
