Domination and Independence on the Rectangular Torus by Rooks and Bishops
A set S V is a dominating set of a graph G = (V; E) if each vertex in V is either in S or is adjacent to a vertex in S. A vertex is said to dominate itself and all its neighbors. ...

On Constant Time Approximation of Parameters of Bounded Degree Graphs
How well can the maximum size of an independent set, or the minimum size of a dominating set of a graph in which all degrees are at most d be approximated by a randomized constant...

The effect of girth on the kernelization complexity of Connected Dominating Set
In the Connected Dominating Set problem we are given as input a graph G and a positive integer k, and are asked if there is a set S of at most k vertices of G such that S is a dom...

Extended Dominating-Set-Based Routing in Ad Hoc Wireless Networks with Unidirectional Links
Efficient routing among a set of mobile hosts (also called nodes) is one of the most important functions in ad hoc wireless networks. Routing based on a connected dominating set is...

Polynomial Time Data Reduction for Dominating Set
Dealing with the NP-complete Dominating Set problem on graphs, we demonstrate the power of data reduction by preprocessing from a theoretical as well as a practical side. In parti...

Restricted domination parameters in graphs
In a graph G, a vertex dominates itself and its neighbors. A subset S ⊆ V (G) is an m-tuple dominating set if S dominates every vertex of G at least m times, and an m-dominating...

Distributed Algorithm for Efficient Construction and Maintenance of Connected k-Hop Dominating Sets in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
A k-hop dominating set is a subset of nodes such that each node not in the set can be reached within k hops from at least one node in the set. A connected k-hop dominating set can ...

Maintaining weakly-connected dominating sets for clustering ad hoc networks
An ad hoc network is a multihop wireless communication network supporting mobile users. Network performance degradation is a major problem as the network becomes larger. Clusterin...

Simultaneous graph parameters: Factor domination and factor total domination
Let F1, F2, . . . , Fk be graphs with the same vertex set V . A subset S V is a factor dominating set if in every Fi every vertex not in S is adjacent to a vertex in S, and a fac...
