Counting Independent Sets in Claw-Free Graphs

Konstanty Junosza-Szaniawski , Zbigniew Lonc , Michał Tuczyński


In this paper we give an algorithm for counting the number of all independent sets in a claw-free graph which works in time O *(1.08352 n ) for graphs with no vertices of degree larger than 3 and O *(1.23544 n ) for arbitrary claw-free graphs, where n is the number of vertices in the instance graph.
