Given an undirected graph, check if it contains an independent set of size k. Print ‘Yes’ if there exists an independent set of size k. Print ‘No’ otherwise.
Independent Set: An independent set in a graph is a set of vertices which are not directly connected to each other.
Input : K = 4, graph = [[1, 1, 0, 0, 0], [1, 1, 1, 1, 1], [0, 1, 1, 0, 0], [0, 1, 0, 1, 0], [0, 1, 0, 0, 1]] Output : Yes
The above graph contains an independent set of size 4 (vertices 1, 2, 3, 4 are not directly connected to each other). Hence the output is ‘Yes’.
Input : K = 4, graph = [[1, 1, 0, 0, 0], [1, 1, 1, 1, 1], [0, 1, 1, 0, 0], [0, 1, 0, 1, 1], [0, 1, 0, 1, 1]] Output : No
The above graph doesn’t contain an independent set of size 4. Hence output is ‘No’.
- Initialize a variable sol with boolean False value.
- Find all the possible sets of vertices of size K from the given graph.
- If an independent set of size k is found, change the value of sol to True and return.
- Else continue checking for other possible sets.
- In the end, if sol is True, print ‘Yes’ else print ‘No’.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
Time Complexity: where V is the number of vertices in the graph and k is the given size of set.
