We study reconfiguration of independent sets in interval graphs under the token sliding rule. We show that if two independent sets of size k are reconfigurable in an n-vertex interval graph, then there is a reconfiguration sequence of length 𝒪(k⋅ n²). We also provide a construction in which the shortest reconfiguration sequence is of length Ω(k²⋅ n).
As a counterpart to these results, we also establish that Independent Set Reconfiguration is PSPACE-hard on incomparability graphs, of which interval graphs are a special case.

We study on-line colorings of certain graphs given as intersection graphs of objects "between two lines", i.e., there is a pair of horizontal lines such that each object of the representation is a connected set contained in the strip between the lines and touches both. Some of the graph classes admitting such a representation are permutation graphs (segments), interval graphs (axis-aligned rectangles), trapezoid graphs (trapezoids) and cocomparability graphs (simple curves). We present an on-line algorithm coloring graphs given by convex sets between two lines that uses O(w^3) colors on graphs with maximum clique size w.
In contrast intersection graphs of segments attached to a single line may force any on-line coloring algorithm to use an arbitrary number of colors even when w=2.
The left-of relation makes the complement of intersection graphs of objects between two lines into a poset. As an aside we discuss the relation of the class C of posets obtained from convex sets between two lines with some other classes of posets: all 2-dimensional posets and all posets of height 2 are in C but there is a 3-dimensional poset of height 3 that does not belong to C.
We also show that the on-line coloring problem for curves between two lines is as hard as the on-line chain partition problem for arbitrary posets.
