The bondage number of random graphs


A dominating set of a graph is a subset D of its vertices such that every vertex not in D is adjacent to at least one member of D. The domination number of a graph G is the number of vertices in a smallest dominating set of G. The bondage number of a nonempty graph G is the size of a smallest set of edges whose removal from G results in a graph with domination number greater than the domination number of G. In this note, we study the bondage number of binomial random graph G (n, p). We obtain a lower bound that matches the order of the trivial upper bound. As a side product, we give a one-point concentration result for the domination number of G (n, p) under certain restrictions.
