A Rainbow Clique Search Algorithm for BLT-Sets
We discuss an algorithm to search for rainbow cliques in vertex-colored graphs. This algorithm is a generalization of the Bron-Kerbosch algorithm to search for maximal cliques in graphs. As an application, we describe a larger algorithm to classify a certain type of geometric-combinatorial objects called BLT-sets. We report on the classification of BLT-sets of order 71.
