摘要:An independent set of a graph $G$ is a set of pairwise non-adjacent vertices. Let $\alpha(G)$ denote the cardinality of a maximum independent set and $f_s(G)$ for $0\le s\le \alpha(G)$ denote the number of independent sets of $s$ vertices. The independence polynomial $I(G;x)=\sum_{i=0}^{\alpha(G)}f_s(G)x^s$ defined first by Gutman and Harary has been the focus of considerable research recently. In this talk, we will first introduce some basic concepts and tools related to the indepence polynomials of graphs, and then present some bounds for $f_s(G)$ when $G$ is a $k$-tree, a maximum  $k$-degenerate graph or a compound graph. Additionally, we will characterize  graphs which attain our  bounds. Finally, we  will propose several further research problems.
