ABSTRACT
The Broadcast Domination problem seeks a function $f:V \rightarrow \{0,1,2, \dot s \}$ that minimizes $\sum_{v \in V} f(v)$ with the constraint that for every $v$ with $f(v)=0$, there is a vertex $u \in V$ with $f(u)$ at least the distance f rom $u$ to $v$ in $G$. This is a generalization of the standard Dominating Set problem. This note investigates the problem from a computational standpoint.
