I am working with a large, but relatively sparse network, and trying
to fit some ERGMs. There appears to be memory problems when using R. The
typically error message R produces is
"Error: cannot allocate vector of size 222757 Kb"
My understanding is that while the ERGM is running R runs out of
virtually memory. Typically this could be solved by using a 64 bit
machine and allowing it some time. But it also depends on R.
I was wondering if anyone knew if R and the package Statnet were written
with 32 bit or 64 bit hardware in mind. That is, is the memory problem
above arising because I am running R & Statnet within windows on a 32
bit computer or because R & Statnet were written as a "32 bit program"
ie. software versus hardware problem or both?
Thanks for the help,
