Weight of edges

Post by adivlad » 18 Nov 2017 21:30

Hi, there. First of all, excuse my english, I am not so good at it, but I will try to be as readable as I can.
So, my question is: I want to represent an edge depending on the intensity of the interaction. To be more specific:
On Facebook, if node A gives a Like to node B, I consider this to bo an edge with the weight equal to 1, If the node B gives also a Like to node B, then the edge will have a weight equal to 2.
How can I have a graph with such weightning?
Also, in a business network, there are many levels of financial transactions. I want that the weight of an edge between two nodes to be represented depending on the sum of the transactions. For example, if A gives to B 100 euro, then other 250 and again 75, this means the total amount is 425. Also, B gives to A a total amount of 420 euros. The Big Total is 845. I want that teh Big Total will be represented on graph as label of the edge between A and B.
In UCINET this is possible, due to the concept of valued edges. Is this possible in GEPHI?

You can import undirected edges and choose edges merge strategy = sum (weights) during import report.
