The DOMINATING INDUCED MATCHING problem, also known as EFFICIENT EDGE DOMINATION, is the problem of determining whether a graph has an induced matching that dominates every edge of the graph. This problem is known to be NP-complete. We study the computational complexity of the problem in special graph classes. In the present paper, we identify a critical class for this problem (i.e., a class lying on a "boundary" separating difficult instances of the problem from polynomially solvable ones) and derive a number of polynomial-time results. In particular, we develop polynomial-time algorithms to solve the problem for claw-free graphs and convex graphs. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
