**How do you find cliques?**

To find a clique of G:

- Suppose that G has n vertices.
- Find a vertex v of the smallest possible degree in G.
- If the degree of v is n − 1, stop; G is a clique, so the largest clique in G has size n.
- Otherwise, remove v and all of its edges from G. Find the largest clique in the smaller graph.

#### What makes a clique?

Cliques are groups of friends, but not all groups of friends are cliques. The thing that makes a group a clique (say: KLIK) is that they leave some kids out on purpose.

## What is the opposite of a clique of a graph?

of the graph. A maximum clique transversal of a graph is a subset of vertices with the property that each maximum clique of the graph contains at least one vertex in the subset. The opposite of a clique is an independent set, in the sense that every clique corresponds to an independent set in the complement graph.

## What is the clique number of the graph with 4 cliques?

The two dark blue 4-cliques are both maximum and maximal, and the clique number of the graph is 4. In the mathematical area of graph theory, a clique ( / ˈkliːk / or / ˈklɪk /) is a subset of vertices of an undirected graph such that every two distinct vertices in the clique are adjacent. That is, a clique of a graph that is complete.
