Abstract

The degeneracy of a graph G is the smallest integer k such that every subgraph of G contains a vertex of degree at most k. Given an n-order k-degenerate graph G, we present an algorithm for enumerating all its maximal cliques. Assuming that c is the number of maximal cliques of G, our algorithm has setup time O(n(k^2+s(k+1))) and enumeration time cO((k+1)f(k+1)) where s(k+1) (resp. f(k+1)) is the preprocessing time (resp. enumeration time) for maximal clique enumeration in a general (k+1)-order graph. This is the first output sensitive algorithm whose enumeration time depends only on the degeneracy of the graph.
