title: | Complexity Results on Graphs with Few Cliques |

keywords: | graphs, few cliques, Helly property, intersection representation, complexity |

abstract: | A graph class has few cliques if there is a polynomial bound on the number of maximal cliques contained in any member of the class. This restriction is equivalent to the requirement that any graph in the class has a polynomial sized intersection representation that satisfies the Helly property. On any such class of graphs, some problems that are NP-complete on general graphs, such as the maximum clique problem and the maximum weighted clique problem, admit polynomial time algorithms. Other problems, such as the vertex clique cover and edge clique cover problems remain NP-complete on these classes. Several classes of graphs which have few cliques are discussed, and the complexity of some partitioning and covering problems are determined for the class of all graphs which have fewer cliques than a given polynomial bound. |

The first *source* gives you the `gzipped' PostScript, the second the plain
PostScript and the third the format for the Adobe accrobat
reader. Depending on the installation of your web browser, at least
one of these should (after some amount of time) pop up a window for
you that shows the full article. If this is not the case, you should
contact your system administrator to install your browser correctly.

Due to limitations of your local software, the two formats may show up differently on your screen. If eg you use xpdf to visualize pdf, some of the graphics in the file may not come across. On the other hand, pdf has a capacity of giving links to sections, bibliography and external references that will not appear with PostScript.
