Thank you for useful information and suggestions.  I will certainly look 
into what you mention.  I am at the moment looking at the igraph 
package, which seems to have what I need, and includes visualization as 
well.  As for Python, that is nice, but if I can do most of what I want 
in R, I would prefer that.
