LayerSizeFunction

LayerSizeFunction
is an option for TreePlot that gives a function to specify the relative height to allow for each layer.
  • LayerSizeFunction->f specifies that the difference of coordinates between layer n and layer should be proportional to .
  • The root or top vertices are taken to be at layer 1.
Draw a tree with the first level of height 1, and the second of height 2:
Plot a binary tree with random layer size:
