Abstract A dominating set D of a fuzzy graph G=( ,Âµ) is a cycle non split dominating set if the induced fuzzy subgraphH=(<V- D>,,Âµ) is a cycle. The cycle non split domination number cns(G)of G is the minimum fuzzy cardinality of a cycle non split dominating set. In this paper we study a cycle non split dominating sets of fuzzy graphs and investigate the relationship of cns(G) with other known parameters of G.

Keywords Fuzzy graphs, Fuzzy domination, Split fuzzy domination number, Non Split fuzzy domination number, cycle non split domination number.

1. INTRODUCTION

Kulli V.R. et.alintroduced the concept ofsplit domination and non-split domination in graphs [3]. Rosenfield introduced the notion of fuzzy graph and several fuzzy analogs of graph theoretic concepts such as path,cycles and connectedness[10].A.Somasundram and S.Somasundram discussed domination inFuzzy graphs[11]. MahyoubQ.M.and Sonar N.D.discussed the split domination number of fuzzy graphs[6].Ponnappan C.Y and et. al. discussed the strong non split domination number of fuzzy graphs [9]. In this paper we discuss the cycle non split domination number of fuzzy graph and obtained the relationshipwith other knownparametersof G.

Proof :

Let D be a minimal cycle non split dominating set

and vD, then D=D-{v} is not a cycle non-split dominating set and hence there exist uV-D such that u is not dominated by any element of D. If u=v we get (i) and if uv we get (ii). The converse is obvious.
