The criterion for invulnerability of a network based on the connectivity of a graph is well treated in literature. We define a criterion for survivability of a network in terms of the independence number of a graph. The following problems are then considered. 1) Find an r -connected graph, with n vertices and m_0 = [(nr + l)/2] edges, whose independence number is the minimum possible, where [x] denotes the greatest integer less than or equal to x \cdot 2 ) Given positive integers n,m,r , and k , find the realizability conditions for a graph with n vertices and m edges, whose connectivity is at least r and independence number is at most k .
