      Let $G=(V,E)$ be a simple graph with vertex set $V$ and edge set $E$. A signed mixed dominating function of $G$ is a function $f$: $V\cup E\rightarrow \{-1,1\}$ such that $\sum_{y\in N_m(x)\cup\{x\}}f(y)\ge 1$ for every element $x\in V\cup E$, where $N_m(x)$ is the set of elements of $V\cup E$ adjacent or incident to $x$. The weight of $f$ is $w(f)=\sum_{x\in V\cup E}f(x)$. The signed mixed domination problem is to find a minimum-weight signed mixed dominating function of a graph. In this paper we study the computational complexity of signed mixed domination problem. We prove that the signed mixed domination problem is NP-complete for bipartite graphs, chordal graphs, even for planar bipartite graphs.
