I have two networks, i took intersection between them but i cant getting edge list from data.frame

who know the reason of the error please?

g_sim <- graph.intersection(g_1, g_2, byname = "auto", keep.all.vertices = FALSE)

edge_ara<- edge_ara[order(abs(edge_ara$weight),decreasing = T),]

Error in abs(edge_ara$weight) : non-numeric argument to mathematical function

thank you

HI, I would suggest you to print out the edge_ara$weight to text file and check whether you find any suspicious non-numeric argument. if there is any, just remove them and run the script.

thank you I inspect edge_ara <-,what = "edges") but file was empty then edge_ara<- edge_ara[order(abs(edge_ara$weight),decreasing = T),] gives me error but i don't know why file was empty

Just go step by step and check whether the data is there in a variable before you go for subsequent analysis

You need to check values of g_1, g_2 and g_sim and first see what is the overlap !
