Let G be a group. Recall that the intersection graph of subgroups of G is an undirected graph whose vertex set is the set of all nontrivial subgroups of G and distinct vertices H,K are joined by an edge in this graph if and only if the intersection of H and K is nontrivial. The aim of this article is to investigate the interplay between the group-theoretic properties of a finite group G and the graph-theoretic properties of the complement of the intersection graph of subgroups of G.
