# networkx.algorithms.chordal.chordal_graph_cliques¶

chordal_graph_cliques(G)[source]

Returns the set of maximal cliques of a chordal graph.

The algorithm breaks the graph in connected components and performs a maximum cardinality search in each component to get the cliques.

Parameters

G (graph) – A NetworkX graph

Returns

cliques

Return type

A set containing the maximal cliques in G.

Raises

NetworkXError – The algorithm does not support DiGraph, MultiGraph and MultiDiGraph. If the input graph is an instance of one of these classes, a NetworkXError is raised. The algorithm can only be applied to chordal graphs. If the input graph is found to be non-chordal, a NetworkXError is raised.

Examples

>>> import networkx as nx
>>> e= [(1,2),(1,3),(2,3),(2,4),(3,4),(3,5),(3,6),(4,5),(4,6),(5,6),(7,8)]
>>> G = nx.Graph(e)
