On a Nordhaus-Gaddum type problem for independent domination

E.J. Cockayne, G. Fricke, C.M. Mynhardt
1995 Discrete Mathematics  
Let i(G) (i(G), respectively) be the independent domination number (i.e. smallest cardinality of a maximal independent vertex subset) of the p-vertex graph G (the complement G of G, respectively).  ...  The research was partially supported by the Canadian Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and by the South African Foundation for Research Development.  ...  The calculations of extremum values of q(G) + q((7) and q(G)q((7) taken over all p-vertex graphs G are known as Nordhaus-Gaddum type problems, due to the results of [3] , in which Nordhaus and Gaddum  ...

A note on Nordhaus–Gaddum inequalities for domination

2004 Discrete Applied Mathematics  
Let u(G) be a graph parameter, the calculations of extremum values of u(G) + u( G) and u(G)u( G) taken over all n-vertex graphs G are known as Nordhaus-Gaddum type problems, due to the results of [5]  ...  Let W 1 be a maximum sized independent set for W in G, then |W 1 | ¿ ( G) − 2 ¿ k.

Nordhaus-Gaddum type inequalities for multiple domination and packing parameters in graphs [article]

D.A. Mojdeh, Babak Samadi, Lutz Volkmann
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We study the Nordhaus-Gaddum type results for (k-1,k,j) and k-domination numbers of a graph G and investigate these bounds for the k-limited packing and k-total limited packing numbers in graphs.  ...  As the special case (k-1,k,j)=(1,2,0) we give an upper bound on dd(G)+dd(G) stronger than that presented by Harary and Haynes (1996).  ...  Moreover, by the symmetry we have The first Nordhaus-Gaddum type inequality for the sum of the total domination numbers of a graph and its complement was given in [2] . Henning et al.  ...

2018 arXiv   pre-print
We prove some Nordhaus-Gaddum type inequalities, derive their computational complexity and present several bounds for them.  ...  Let G be a graph and let S⊆ V(G). The set S is a double outer-independent dominating set of G if |N[v]∩ D|≥2, for all v∈ V(G), and V(G)∖ S is independent.  ...  We begin with the Nordhaus-Gaddum type inequalities for the TOID number of graphs.  ...

Note on Nordhaus-Gaddum Problems for Colin de Verdière type Parameters

(G)+\xi(\overline{G})\le b_\xi | G|$ for all graphs $G$, and $\nu$ and $\xi$ are Colin de Verdiere type graph parameters.  ...  The Nordhaus-Gaddum sum lower bound for $\nu$ and $\xi$ is conjectured to be $|G| - 2$, and if these parameters are replaced by the maximum nullity $M(G)$, this bound is called the Graph Complement Conjecture  ...  Introduction Nordhaus-Gaddum problems have been studied for many different graph parameters, including chromatic number, independence number, domination number, Hadwiger number, etc.  ...

Abel Cabrera Martínez, J. C. Hernández-Gómez, E. Parra Inza, José M. Sigarreta
2020 Mathematics  
In addition, we give several NordhausGaddum type results. Finally, we prove that computing the total outer k-independent domination number of a graph G is an NP-hard problem.  ...  For instance, we give several closed relationships between this novel parameter and other ones related to domination and independence in graphs.  ...  Acknowledgments: We would like to thank the referees for their careful reading of the manuscript and several useful comments that have helped us to improve the presentation of the paper.  ...
