S. Ravi Narayanan, N.R. Santhi Maheswari"Sum Distance in Bipolar Fuzzy Graphs", International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT), V30(6),281-288 December 2015. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group

In this paper, sum distance in bipolar fuzzy graph is defined and the properties of eccentricity, radius and sum distance of a bipolar fuzzy graph are studied. A characterization of self centered complete bipolar fuzzy graph is obtained. The sufficient condition for a cycle to be self centered based on sum distance is discussed.
