Let G be a graph on n vertices with independence number $\alpha$. How large a k-connected subgraph must G contain? It turns out that if n is sufficiently large ($n>\alpha^2 k$ will do), then G always contains a k-connected subgraph on at least $n/\alpha$ vertices. This is sharp, since G might be the disjoint union of $\alpha$ equally-sized cliques. What if n is not sufficiently large? We shall present the (surprisingly complicated) answer when $\alpha=2$ and $\alpha=3$. Some open questions will also be presented.

Joint work with Shinya Fujita (Yokohama City University, Japan) and Amites Sarkar (Western Washington University, USA ).
