Summary:
For a graphical property $\mathcal{P}$ and a graph $G$, a subset $S$ of vertices of $G$ is a $\mathcal{P}$-set if the subgraph induced by $S$ has the property $\mathcal{P}$. The domination number with respect to the property $\mathcal{P}$, is the minimum cardinality of a dominating $\mathcal{P}$-set. In this paper we present results on changing and unchanging of the domination number with respect to the nondegenerate and hereditary properties when a graph is modified by adding an edge or deleting a vertex.
