Embedding Graphs in Boolean Graphs



Prove the following:
Every finite graph can be viewed as an induced subgraph of some graph
on the powerset of a set X, where two vertices A and B are connected if
and only A intersect B = empty.
Apparantly, this is easy to prove, but I cant see it. Any help would
be appreciated.

Let G be your graph, G' its complement. Let X be the set of edges of G'
and associate with vertex A the set of edges of G' incident with A.

Assuming you don't have any restrictions on X...
Let X = (V(G))^{(2)}  E(G) (i.e. the places where an edge isn't, in G).
If V(G)={v_1,...} then let V_1 be the subset of X whose members contain v_1,
et cetera.
Then in the Boolean graph, V_i, V_j are connected iff V_i intersect V_j is
empty iff v_i, v_j are connected.
