Abstract

Let G be a connected graph. An ordered set of vertices {v1, ..., vl} is a 2-resolving set for G if, for any distinct vertices u, w ∈ V (G), the lists of distances (dG(u, v1), ..., dG(u, vl)) and (dG(w, v1), ..., dG(w, vl)) differ in at least 2 positions. A set S ⊆ V (G) is a restrained 2-resolving set in G if S is a 2-resolving set in G and S = V (G) or ⟨V (G)\S⟩ has no isolated vertex. The restrained 2-resolving number of G, denoted by rdim2(G), is the smallest cardinality of a restrained 2-resolving set in G. A restrained 2-resolving set of cardinality rdim2(G) is then referred to as an rdim2-set in G. This study deals with the concept of restrained 2-resolving set of a graph. It
characterizes the restrained 2-resolving set in the join, corona and lexicographic product of two graphs and determine the bounds or exact values of the 2-resolving dominating number of these graphs.
