simplifyNet: Network Sparsification

Network sparsification with a variety of novel and known network sparsification techniques. All network sparsification techniques reduce the number of edges, not the number of nodes. Network sparsification is sometimes referred to as network dimensionality reduction. This package is based on the work of Spielman, D., Srivastava, N. (2009)<doi:10.48550/arXiv.0803.0929>. Koutis I., Levin, A., Peng, R. (2013)<doi:10.48550/arXiv.1209.5821>. Toivonen, H., Mahler, S., Zhou, F. (2010)<doi:10.1007>. Foti, N., Hughes, J., Rockmore, D. (2011)<doi:10.1371>.
