ABSTRACT = {Bipartite graphs with equal edge domination number and maximum matching
cardinality are characterized. These two parameters are used
to develop bounds on the vertex cover and total vertex cover
numbers of graphs and a resulting chain of vertex covering,
edge domination, and matching parameters is explored. In
addition, the total vertex cover number is compared to the
total domination number of trees and grid graphs.},
