In this paper, we study a variant of the Minimum Dominating Set problem. Given an unweighted undirected graph G = (V, E) of n = |V| vertices, the goal of the Minimum Single Dominating Cycle problem (MinSDC) is to find a single shortest cycle which dominates all vertices, i.e., a cycle C such that for the set V(C) of vertices in C and the set N(V(C)) of neighbor vertices of C, V(G) = V(C) ∪ N(V(C)) and |V(C)| is minimum over all dominating cycles in G [6], [17], [24]. In this paper we consider the (in)approximability of MinSDC if input graphs are restricted to some special classes of graphs. We first show that MinSDC is still NP-hard to approximate even when restricted to planar, bipartite, chordal, or r-regular (r ≥ 3). Then, we show the (ln n + 1)-approximability and the (1 - ϵ) ln n-inapproximability of MinSDC on split graphs under P ≠ NP. Furthermore, we explicitly design a linear-time algorithm to solve MinSDC for graphs with bounded treewidth and estimate the hidden constant factor of its running time-bound.
