A subset S of a graph G = (V,E) is said to be a dominating set if each vertex of V is either in the set S or is adjacent to at least one vertex in S. The minimum cardinality among the dominating sets of G is called the domination number of G and is denoted by ϒ(G). Historically, the domination number is one of the most popular topics in graph theory. It is known that finding the domination number of a given graph G is NP hard. In this thesis, we consider the domination number of Cartesian products of complete graphs.
