Equi independent equitable domination number, equitable domination number, domination number, número de dominación equi-independiente y equitativo, número de dominación equitativo, número de dominación.


We introduce the concept of an equi independent equitable dominating set and define equi independent equitable domination number. We also investigate the graph families whose equi independent equitable domination number and equitable domination number are same.
