Finding Cliques in Networks

A clique is a set of three or more nodes in a network that are all connected to one another. An -clique is defined by indirect connections of length or less. In a -plex, every node is allowed missing links to other clique members. Sliders control characteristics of a random network. Click the diagram to cycle through the cliques.
