    1. 6K-core which includes 11 participants connected to at least six other participants

      From Wasserman and Faust: K-cores are used to identify sub-groups (or cliques?) within a network. The clique is a complete subgraph of a whole network. I think this means that all the nodes in this small group have all possible ties. So (again this is my understanding), a K-core of 6 means that all the nodes are linked to (at least) the same 6 nodes. Nodes in one clique can be in other cliques.
