Some New Results on Domination Integrity of Graphs


The domination integrity of a connected graph G= (V(G), E(G)) is denoted as DI(G) and defined by DI(G) = min{*S*+ m(G-S) : S is a dominating set } where m(G-S) is the order of a maximum component of G-S . We discuss domination integrity in the context of some graph operations like duplication of an edge by vertex and duplication of vertex by an edge.
