Convex and Weakly Convex Domination in Prism Graphs

Open access


For a given graph G = (V;E) and permutation π : VV the prism πG of G is defined as follows: VG) = V (G) ∪ V (G′), where G′ is a copy of G, and E(πG) = E(G) ∪ E(G′) ∪Mπ, where Mπ = {uv′ : uV (G); v = π (u)} and v′ denotes the copy of v in G′.

We study and compare the properties of convex and weakly convex dominating sets in prism graphs. In particular, we characterize prism γcon-fixers and -doublers. We also show that the differences γwcon(G) – γwcon(πG) and γwcon (πG) – 2γwcon (G) can be arbitrarily large, and that the convex domination number of πG cannot be bounded in terms of γcon (G).
