Özet

Let G = (V (G),E(G)) be a simple graph. A subset S of V (G) is a dominating set of G if, for any vertex v a V (G) - S, there exists some vertex u a S such that uv a E(G). The domination number, denoted by gamma(G), is the cardinality of a minimal dominating set of G. There are several types of domination parameters depending upon the nature of domination and the nature of dominating set. These parameters are bondage, reinforcement, strong-weak domination, strong-weak bondage numbers. In this paper, we first investigate the strong-weak domination number of middle graphs of a graph. Then several results for the bondage, strong-weak bondage number of middle graphs are obtained.
