abstract = {A Roman dominating function (RDF) on a graph $G = (V, E)$ is a labeling $f : V rightarrow {0, 1, 2}$ suchthat every vertex with label $0$ has a neighbor with label $2$. The weight of $f$ is the value $f(V) = Sigma_{vin V} f(v)$The Roman domination number, $gamma_R(G)$, of $G$ is theminimum weight of an RDF on $G$.An RDF of minimum weight is called a $gamma_R$-function.A graph G is said to be $gamma_R$-excellent if for each vertex $x in V$there is a $gamma_R$-function $h_x$ on $G$ with $h_x(x) not = 0$. We present a constructive characterization of $gamma_R$-excellent trees using labelings. A graph $G$ is said to be in class $UVR$ if $gamma(G-v) = gamma (G)$ for each $v in V$, where $gamma(G)$ is the domination number of $G$. We show that each tree in $UVR$ is $gamma_R$-excellent.},

abstract = {Let $kgeq 1$ be an integer, and let $G$ be a graph. A {it$k$-rainbow dominating function} (or a {it $k$-RDF}) of $G$ is afunction $f$ from the vertex set $V(G)$ to the family of all subsetsof ${1,2,ldots ,k}$ such that for every $vin V(G)$ with$f(v)=emptyset $, the condition $bigcup_{uinN_{G}(v)}f(u)={1,2,ldots,k}$ is fulfilled, where $N_{G}(v)$ isthe open neighborhood of $v$. The {it weight} of a $k$-RDF $f$ of$G$ is the value $omega (f)=sum _{vin V(G)}|f(v)|$. A $k$-rainbowdominating function $f$ in a graph with no isolated vertex is calleda {em total $k$-rainbow dominating function} if the subgraph of $G$induced by the set ${v in V(G) mid f (v) not = {color{blue}emptyset}}$ has no isolated vertices. The {em total $k$-rainbow domination number} of $G$, denoted by$gamma_{trk}(G)$, is the minimum weight of a total $k$-rainbowdominating function on $G$. The total $1$-rainbow domination is thesame as the total domination. In this paper we initiate thestudy of total $k$-rainbow domination number and we investigate itsbasic properties. In particular, we present some sharp bounds on thetotal $k$-rainbow domination number and we determine {color{blue}the} total$k$-rainbow domination number of some classes of graphs. },

abstract = {A double Roman dominating function on a graph $G$ with vertex set $V(G)$ is defined in cite{bhh} as a function$f:V(G)rightarrow{0,1,2,3}$ having the property that if $f(v)=0$, then the vertex $v$ must have at least twoneighbors assigned 2 under $f$ or one neighbor $w$ with $f(w)=3$, and if $f(v)=1$, then the vertex $v$ must haveat least one neighbor $u$ with $f(u)ge 2$. The weight of a double Roman dominating function $f$ is the sum$sum_{vin V(G)}f(v)$, and the minimum weight of a double Roman dominating function on $G$ is the double Romandomination number $gamma_{dR}(G)$ of $G$.A set ${f_1,f_2,ldots,f_d}$ of distinct double Roman dominating functions on $G$ with the property that$sum_{i=1}^df_i(v)le 3$ for each $vin V(G)$ is called in cite{v} a double Roman dominating family (of functions)on $G$. The maximum number of functions in a double Roman dominating family on $G$ is the double Roman domatic numberof $G$.In this note we continue the study the double Roman domination and domatic numbers. In particular, we presenta sharp lower bound on $gamma_{dR}(G)$, and we determine the double Roman domination and domatic numbers of someclasses of graphs.},

abstract = {Let $G=(V, E)$ be a simple graph with vertex set $V$ and edge set $E$. A {em mixed Roman dominating function} (MRDF) of $G$ is a function $f:Vcup Erightarrow {0,1,2}$ satisfying the condition that every element $xin Vcup E$ for which $f(x)=0$ is adjacentor incident to at least one element $yin Vcup E$ for which $f(y)=2$. The weight of anMRDF $f$ is $sum _{xin Vcup E} f(x)$. The mixed Roman domination number $gamma^*_R(G)$ of $G$ isthe minimum weight among all mixed Roman dominating functions of $G$. A subset $S$ of $V$ is a 2-independent set of $G$ if every vertex of $S$ has at most one neighbor in $S$. The minimum cardinality of a 2-independent set of $G$ is the 2-independence number $beta_2(G)$. These two parameters are incomparable in general, however, we show that if $T$ is a tree, then $frac{4}{3}beta_2(T)ge gamma^*_R(T)$ and we characterize all trees attaining the equality.},
