Motivated by Kotzig and Rosas concept of edge magic deficiency, Figueroa-Centeno, Ichishima and Muntaner-Batle defined a similar concept for super edge magic total labelings. The super edge magic deficiency of a graph G, which is denoted by μs(G), is the minimum nonnegative integer n such that G U nK1, has a super edge magic total labeling or it is equal to +∞ if there exists no such n. In this paper, we study the super edge magic deficiency of kite graphs.
