That is a very good reply Ryan! Those of you who would like to jump to implementing your agents first and then solving the initialisation stuff, can use the files that I have uploaded on LMS>Project2022 (also available on teams). Erdos-Renyi is indeed the easiest approach to generate graphs. If you want to implement more sophisticated solutions you can use other models (e.g., preferential attachment, planted partition or ERMGs). Please note you will not be penalised for not using a sophisticated network model, however those who implement sophisticated network models may end up in writing better test cases and producing close to real life solutions. A basic G(n,p), where n= number of nodes and p= probability of connections is fine. You may want to explore networkX in python or igraph (if you are working in python). I am only throwing pointers, at the end of the day it is your choice how you implement!
