Abstract

top
Let G = (V(G),E(G)) be a simple graph, and let k be a positive integer. A subset D of V(G) is a k-dominating set if every vertex of V(G) - D is dominated at least k times by D. The k-domination number γₖ(G) is the minimum cardinality of a k-dominating set of G. In [5] Volkmann showed that for every nontrivial tree T, γ₂(T) ≥ γ₁(T)+1 and characterized extremal trees attaining this bound. In this paper we characterize all trees T with γ₂(T) = γ₁(T)+2.
