# Jinha Kim (김진하), Independent domination of graphs with bounded maximum degree

## February 15 Tuesday @ 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM KST

An independent dominating set of a graph, also known as a maximal independent set, is a set $S$ of pairwise non-adjacent vertices such that every vertex not in $S$ is adjacent to some vertex in $S$. We prove that for $\Delta=4$ or $\Delta\ge 6$, every connected $n$-vertex graph of maximum degree at most $\Delta$ has an independent dominating set of size at most $(1-\frac{\Delta}{ \lfloor\Delta^2/4\rfloor+\Delta })(n-1)+1$. In addition, we characterize all connected graphs having the equality and we show that other connected graphs have an independent dominating set of size at most $(1-\frac{\Delta}{ \lfloor\Delta^2/4\rfloor+\Delta })n$.

This is joint work with Eun-Kyung Cho, Minki Kim, and Sang-il Oum.
