The Zero-Free Intervals for Chromatic Polynomials of Graphs


The maximal zero-free intervals for chromatic polynomials of graphs are precisely (−∞, 0), (0, 1), (1, 32/27]. We also investigate the distribution of zeros of chromatic polynomials in various classes of graphs closed under minors. For example, the zeros of chromatic polynomials of graphs of tree-width at most k consist of 0, 1 and a dense subset of the interval (32/27, k].
