A dominating set S of a graph G is called locating-dominating, LD-set for short, if every vertex v not in S is uniquely determined by the set of neighbors of v belonging to S. Locating-dominating sets of minimum cardinality are called LD-codes and the cardinality of an LD-code is the location-domination number lambda(G). An LD-set S of a graph G is global if it is an LD-set of both G and its complement G'. The global location-domination number lambda g(G) is introduced as the minimum cardinality of a global LD-set of G.
In this paper, some general relations between LD-codes and the location-domination number in a graph and its complement are presented first.
Next, a number of basic properties involving the global location-domination number are showed. Finally, both parameters are studied in-depth for the family of block-cactus graphs.
