On solving the clique problem via the d.c. constraint problem
The Maximum Weighted Clique Problem (MWCP) and the Maximum Clique Problem (MCP) are considered as continuous (nonconvex) problems with constraint given by the (d.c.) function which can be represented as the difference of two convex functions. For solving MWCP and MCP the Global Search Strategy is applied, that is the base of a heuristic algorithm. Each step of the algorithm is investigated. The computational effectiveness of this approach is illustrated in comparison with other approaches.
