A graph is strongly perfect if every induced subgraph has an independent vertex set meeting all maximal cliques
of
(Berge and Duchet 1984, Ravindra 1999).

Every strongly perfect graph is perfect, but the
converse is not necessarily true.

Every -free
graph (i.e., every graph not containing the path graph as a vertex-induced subgraph), is
strongly perfect (Ravindra 1999).
