Abstract :

The detour distance $D(u, v)$ between two vertices of a connected graph $G$ is the length of a longest path between them. A set $S$ of vertices of $G$ is called a extit{detour dominating set} if every vertex of $G$ is detour dominated by some vertex in $S$. A detour dominating set of minimum cardinality is a extit{minimum detour dominating set} and its cardinality is the extit{ detour domination number} $gamma_{_{D}}(G)$. We have investigated detour domination number of larger graphs obtained from path and cycles by means of various graph operations.

Keywords :
