A matching and a dominating set in a graph G are related in that they determine diameter-bounded subtree partitions of G. For a maximum matching and a minimum dominating set, the associate partitions have the fewest numbers of trees. The problem of determining a minimum dominating set in an arbitrary graph G is known to be NP-complete. In this paper we present a linear algorithm for partitioning an arbitrary tree into a minimum number of subtrees, each having a diameter at mostk, for a givenk.
