On Independent Transversal Dominating Sets in Graphs

Daven Sapitanan Sevilleno, Ferdinand P. Jamil


A set S ⊆ V (G) is an independent transversal dominating set of a graph G if S is a dominating set of G and intersects every maximum independent set of G. An independent transversal dominating set which is a total dominating set is an independent transversal total dominating set. The minimum cardinality γit(G) (resp. γitt(G)) of an independent transversal dominating set (resp. independent transversal total dominating set) of G is the independent transversal domination number (resp. independent transversal total domination number) of G. In this paper, we show that for every positive integers a and b with 5 ≤ a ≤ b ≤ 2a − 2, there exists a connected graph G for which γit(G) = a and γitt(G) = b. We also study these two concepts in graphs which are the join, corona or composition of graphs.
