Relatively Prime Detour Domination Number of Some Switching Graphs

C Jayasekaran, L. G. Binoja


In this paper, we introduce the concept of relatively prime detour domination number for switching graph. If a set S ⊆ V is a detour set, a dominating set with at least two elements, and has (deg(u), deg(v)) = 1 for each pair of vertices u and v, then it is said to be a relatively prime detour dominating set of a graph G. The relatively prime detour domination number of a graph G is known as γrpdn(G) and represents the lowest cardinality of a relatively prime detour dominating set. First, we explain the concept of a switching graph before producing some conclusions based on the switching graphs of helm, fan, complete, spider, and sunlet graphs that have relatively prime detour domination numbers.
