generate random genealogies
For generating random genealogies a special program
was written (running in command mode - DOS).
GeneoRnd produces required number
of random genealogies exported as Pajek project file
(Ore graph or/and p-graph format) or/and
Besides networks, GeneoRnd
adds on *.paj file also the vector of
birth year for each person and
the gendre partition (1-Female/2-Male).
The values of lines are the years
when they were created (marriage, birth).
On the file report.lst it writes the
trace of generation process.
A 'random' layout for each network is provided
on a *.paj file:
random x-coordinate, y-coordinate proportional to
year (birth, marriage for couples in p-graphs).
Additional information - circle/triangle for sex,
solid/dotted for son/dauther is also added.

Program GeneoRnd can be controled with
the following parameters:
--- parameters ---
format = 4
number of genealogies = 3
max vertices = 500000
number of vertices = 50
number of initial vertices = 10
polygamy allowed = 0
sex F probability = 0.5000000
death F probability = 0.0100000
death M probability = 0.0100000
divorce probability = 0.1000000
marriage probability = 0.3000000
reproduction probability = 0.2500000
F reproduction start = 18
F reproduction end = 45
F life span = 80
M reproduction start = 20
M reproduction end = 75
M life span = 75
The program GeneoRnd saves the values of
parameters on the file gen.par. To protect its
content rename it, for example to testS.par.
Next time you can start the program prom the command line
avoiding the interactive input of parameters.
Since the *.par files are text files you can edit
them using any text editor (NotePad). The order
of parameters is the same as in the above list.
