```I'm using Mathematica 6. Trying to count the Maximum Independent Vertex Set in a graph g. I'm using recursive calls to a function. I think that when I call a return on a function that is called from its recursive predecesor, the two functions finish. Is that possible, or is it only me thinking wrong. If its possible, how can i solve this. Here is the code:

Needs["Combinatorica`"]
g = CompleteGraph[5];
g = DeleteEdge[g, {1, 2}];
g = DeleteEdge[g, {3, 2}];
g = DeleteEdge[g, {1, 3}];
g = DeleteEdge[g, {1, 5}];
g = DeleteEdge[g, {3, 5}];
g = DeleteEdge[g, {2, 5}];

ShowLabeledGraph[g]
n1 = 0;
n2 = 0;
func = Function[g1,
deg = 0;
degrees = Degrees[g1];
temp = 0;
For[i = 1, i <= V[g1], i++,
If[degrees[[i]] > 0, deg = deg + degrees[[i]];]];
deg = Divide[deg, 2];
Print["Degree: ", deg];
v = V[g1];
If[deg == 0, Print["true, V[G] = ", v]; Return[v];
Print["Ret ne rabote"];,
Print["false, V[G] = ", v];
v = V[g1];
Print["Izbrana tocka ", v];
n1 = func[DeleteVertex[g1, v]];
Print["N1 = ", n1];
n2 = func[DeleteVertices[g1, Neighborhood[g1, v, 1]]];
Print["N2 = ", n2];
Print["Max = ", Max[n1, n2]]
Return[Max[n1, n2]]];];
Print[func[g]]

```
