Network analytics involves analysis of networked data, and is a common topic in data science. A clique in a network is a cluster of pairwise adjacent vertices. This concept is frequently used in network analytics since it naturally represents a highly cohesive cluster. This dissertation studies three approaches to apply cliques in network analytics, which can be utilized in transportation networks, economic networks, tourism management, power grids, and social media analysis. In the first chapter, the clique is applied to identify a group of influential vertices in a network. The second chapter proposes a method to identify potential crucial edges using cliques. The last one implements the methods proposed in the second chapter to create a friend recommendation system in Microblog.
