Abstract:

A subset S ¿ V in a graph G = ( V , E ) is a k -quasiperfect dominating set (for k = 1) if every vertex not in S is adjacent to at least one and at most k vertices in S . The cardinality of a minimum k -quasiperfect dominating set in G is denoted by ¿ 1 k ( G ). Those sets were first introduced by Chellali et al. (2013) as a generalization of the perfect domination concept and allow us to construct a decreasing chain of quasiperfect dominating numbers n = ¿ 11 ( G ) = ¿ 12 ( G ) = ... = ¿ 1 ¿ ( G ) = ¿ ( G ) in order to indicate how far is G from being perfectly dominated. In this paper we study properties, existence and realization of graphs for which the chain is short, that is, ¿ 12 ( G ) = ¿ ( G ). Among them, one can find cographs, claw-free graphs and graphs with extremal values of ¿ ( G ).]]>
