Global Domination in Bipolar Fuzzy Graphs

V. Mohanaselvi, S. Sivamani, N. Revathi


In this paper the concept of global domination in bipolar fuzzy graph is introduced and studied its characterization. The necessary and sufficient condition for the global dominating set is given in terms of domination between the vertices. Also semi complete, purely semi complete, semi complementary and semi global domination concepts are defined and some results are obtained.
