We describe techniques that are useful for the detection of dense subgraphs (quasi-cliques) in massive sparse graphs whose vertex set, but not the edge set, fits in RAM. The algorithms rely on efficient semi-external memory algorithms used to preprocess the input and on greedy randomized adaptive search procedures (GRASP) to extract the dense subgraphs. A software platform was put together allowing graphs with hundreds of millions of nodes to be processed. Computational results illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed methods.
