Intersection graphs are very important in both theoretical as well as application point of view. Depending on the geometrical representation, different type of intersection graphs are defined. Among them interval, circular-arc, permutation, trapezoid, chordal, disk, circle graphs are more important. In this article, a brief introduction of each of these intersection graphs is given. Some basic properties and algorithmic status of few problems on these graphs are cited. This article will help to
