Reduce multigraph to simple graph

specifies a method to choose between multiple edges. Edge properties are preserved.
`H`

= simplify(`G`

,`pickmethod`

)`pickmethod`

can be `'first'`

(default),
`'last'`

, `'min'`

, or
`'max'`

.

specifies a method to combine the edge weights of multiple edges into the weight of
a single new edge. All other edge properties in `H`

= simplify(`G`

,`aggregatemethod`

)`G`

are dropped.
`aggregatemethod`

can be `'sum'`

or
`'mean'`

.

specifies whether to preserve or remove self-loops from the graph using any of the
input argument combinations in previous syntaxes. For example,
`H`

= simplify(___,`selfloopflag`

)`'keepselfloops'`

specifies that nodes with one or more
self-loops will have one self-loop in the simplified graph.

specifies additional options with one or more name-value pair arguments. For
example, you can specify `H`

= simplify(___,`Name,Value`

)`'PickVariable'`

and a variable in
`G.Edges`

to use that variable with the
`'min'`

or `'max'`

selection methods.
