This example demonstrates how to add and remove nodes and links from a force layout. The graph initially appears with three nodes A, B and C connected in a loop. Three seconds later, node B is removed, along with the links B-A and B-C. At six seconds, node B is reintroduced, restoring the original links B-A and B-C. This example uses the general update pattern for data joins.
