The included source code finds a Maximum Independent Set (MIS) of a given graph, as described in the included problem description text file. The solution uses a modification to a max-clique algorithm found in a code library from University of Jilin, China. The algorithm uses a depth-first search component. This part of the algorithm is parallelized by assigning several recursive calls to the depth-first code on threads. The code is parallelized using Windows Threads. The code was intended for Windows OS and includes Microsoft Visual Studio solution and project files to build the application.
