On fz- Domination Number of Fuzzy Graphs

A Lekha, K.S Parvathy


Given a fuzzy graph G = (V; ; ), the fz- domination number, fz(G),
is the least scalar cardinality of an fz- dominating set of G. In this article,
we examine several features of fz-domination number of fuzzy
graphs as a result of various fuzzy graph operations. We find bounds
for the fz-domination number of a few graph products and look at the
requirements for the sharpness of these bounds.
