On generalized composed properties of generalized product graphs

Nopparat Pleanmani, Sayan Panma


A property ℘ is defined to be a nonempty isomorphism-closed subclass of the class of all finite simple graphs. A nonempty set S of vertices of a graph G is said to be a ℘-set of G if G[S]∈ ℘. The maximum and minimum cardinalities of a ℘-set of G are denoted by M(G) and m(G), respectively. If S is a ℘-set such that its cardinality equals M(G) or m(G), we say that S is an M-set or an m-set of G, respectively. In this paper, we not only define six types of property ℘ by the using concepts of graph product and generalized graph product, but we also obtain M and m of product graphs in each type and characterize its M-set.
