 GetVertexPositions
 get positions of graph vertices Calling Sequence GetVertexPositions(G, opts) Parameters

 G - graph opts - (optional) one or more options as specified below Options

 • dimension=2 or 3
 The number of dimensions in the layout to return. The default is 2.
 • layout=default, bipartite, circle, fixed, grid, network, planar, random, spectral, spring, tree, or user.
 The layout option directs GetVertexPositions to return a previously computed layout with the specified layout method. The name style is a synonym for this option.
 If no layout method is specified, the vertex positions corresponding to the default drawing style of the graph are returned.
 • output=list or Matrix
 Specifies whether the points should be output as a list of lists or as a Matrix. The default is list. Description

 • The GetVertexPositions('G', 'opts') command returns a list of coordinates representing the positions of the vertices in a previously computed layout.
 • If a layout is specified with the layout option and this layout was not previously computed, the empty list is returned. Examples
