FindKPlex

FindKPlex[g,k]

finds a largest k-plex in the graph g.

FindKPlex[g,k,n]

finds a k-plex containing at most n vertices.

FindKPlex[g,k,{n}]

finds a k-plex containing exactly n vertices.

FindKPlex[g,k,{nmin,nmax}]

finds a k-plex containing between nmin and nmax vertices.

FindKPlex[g,k,nspec,s]

finds at most s k-plexes.

FindKPlex[{g,v},k,]

finds k-plexes that include the vertex v only.

FindKPlex[{vw,},]

uses rules vw to specify the graph g.

Details

  • A k-plex is a maximal set of vertices such that each vertex is adjacent to all except k others.
  • For a directed graph, the outgoing edges for each vertex connect to all except k others.
  • FindKPlex returns a list of k-plexes.
  • FindKPlex will return an empty list if there is no k-plex.
  • FindKPlex[,k,nspec,All] finds all the k-plexes.
  • FindKPlex works with undirected graphs, directed graphs, multigraphs, and mixed graphs.
