Signed star (k,k)-domatic number of a graph

Abstract. Let \(G\) be a simple graph without isolated vertices with vertex set \(V(G)\) and edge set \(E(G)\) and let \(k\) be a positive integer. A function \(f:E(G)\longrightarrow \{-1, 1\}\) is said to be a signed star \(k\)-dominating function on \(G\) if \(\sum_{e\in E(v)}f(e)\ge k\) for every vertex \(v\) of \(G\), where \(E(v)=\{uv\in E(G)\mid u\in N(v)\}\). A set \(\{f_1,f_2,\ldots,f_d\}\) of signed star \(k\)-dominating functions on \(G\) with the property that \(\sum_{i=1}^df_i(e)\le k\) for each \(e\in E(G)\), is called a signed star \((k,k)\)-dominating family (of functions) on \(G\). The maximum number of functions in a signed star \((k,k)\)-dominating family on \(G\) is the signed star \((k,k)\)-domatic number of \(G\), denoted by \(d^{(k,k)}_{SS}(G)\). In this paper we study properties of the signed star \((k,k)\)-domatic number \(d_{SS}^{(k,k)}(G)\). In particular, we present bounds on \(d_{SS}^{(k,k)}(G)\), and we determine the signed \((k,k)\)-domatic number of some regular graphs. Some of our results extend these given by Atapour, Sheikholeslami, Ghameslou and Volkmann [Signed star domatic number of a graph, Discrete Appl. Math. 158 (2010), 213-218] for the signed star domatic number.
Keywords: signed star \((k,k)\)-domatic number, signed star domatic number, signed star \(k\)-dominating function, signed star dominating function, signed star \(k\)-domination number, signed star domination number, regular graphs.
