A function $f: V rightarrow{-1,0,1}$ is a minus dominating function (MDF) of $ G $ if $f(u)+sum_{v in N(u)} sigma (uv)f(v)geq 1 $ for all $ uin V $. In this paper we characterize signed paths and cycles admitting an MDF.http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_13977_d69f8161a1b3221a35ffcfac6d8735d5.pdf
