Error with get_edges_prob

Hi all, I have a NestedBlockState with LayeredBlockState as basis, two layers. I would like to predict edges that are missing in one or the other layer (besides, is this even possible?). However, given a list of missing edges (and a list of spurious ones) I tried this

a_state.get_edges_prob(missing, spurious)

and get this error

I'm not sure what's happening here, but as far as I know gt.BlockState (and gt.NestedBlockState and gt.LayeredBlockState) have a remove_vertex method defined, right?


Please open an issue in the website, including a minimal working example
that shows the problem, the graph-tool version used, and all the other
requested information...


Uhm... I will, in the meantime I realized that I was not specifying the missing edges properly. In fact, testing a working example on gt 2.40 made me realize I have to pass the layer as well for missing edges (source, target, layer), is this correct? Now, on another installation with gt 2.43 that doesn't work anymore. I will open an issue for gt 2.43 only, but as a general question: is it possible to have the probability of a missing edge for a specific layer when LayeredBlockState is used?

Not only it's possible, but it is the only way possible.

Glad to know!

Sorry for the continuous cross-posting. Now referencing
I understand what you mean by "the only way possible". I cannot predict edges in a layer if a node has zero connectivity in that layer.
