Conformal hypergraph

Conformal hypergraph

In graph theory, a branch of mathematics, a hypergraph "H" is conformal if all the maximal cliques of the 2-section of "H" are edges of "H". Here, the 2-section has an edge "F" if "F" contains two vertices and is contained in some edge of "H", or if "F" contains at most one vertex and is an edge of "H".
