For an ordered set W = {w_1, w_2 , ..., w_k } of vertices and a vertex v in a connected graph G, the representation of v with respect to W is the ordered k-tuple r(v|W) = (d(v,w_1), d(v,w_2 ), ..., d (v,w_k )), where d(x,y) represents the distance between the vertices x and y. The set W is called a resolving set for G if every vertex of G has a distinct representation. A resolving set containing a minimum number of vertices is called a basis for G. The dimension of G, denoted by dim(G), is the number of vertices in a basis of G. Let {G_i} be a finite collection of graphs and each G_i has a fixed vertex voi called a terminal. The amalgamation Amal {Gi , v_{oi}} is formed by taking all of the G_i’s and identifying their terminals. In this paper, we determine the metric dimension of amalgamation of cycles.
