The isoperimetric number of a graph , denoted by , was introduced by Mohar (1987). A graph and a subset of its vertices are given, and let denote the edge boundary of , the set of edges which connects vertices in to vertices not in . The isoperimetric number of is defined as . In this paper, some results about the isoperimetric number of graphs obtained by graph operations are given.
