## Layout Algorithms

Layout algorithms play a crucial role in graph visualization by determining the placement of nodes and edges. Graphistry provides several layout algorithms, primarily leveraging cuGraph, to optimize the visual representation of graphs, especially for large datasets. These layout algorithms help in making the structure of the graph more apparent and interpretable.

### Layout Algorithms in cuGraph:

Utilizing cuGraph for layout algorithms provides a smooth transition from Graphistry to cuGraph and vice versa. These GPU-optimized algorithms are ideal for handling complex and large-scale graphs.

#### PageRank Computation and Layout Using cuGraph:

```
# Example: Compute PageRank in cuGraph and apply cuGraph for layout algorithm
g = graphistry.from_cugraph(G)
g2 = g.compute_cugraph('pagerank')
g3 = g2.layout_cugraph('force_atlas2')
g3.plot()
```

The above code demonstrates the computation of PageRank using cuGraph, followed by the application of a layout algorithm, such as 'force_atlas2', for visualizing the graph. This approach ensures efficient and effective graph layouts for comprehensive analysis.
