A total coloring of a graph is an assignment of colors to all the elements (vertices and edges) of the graph such that no two adjacent or incident elements receive the same color. In this paper, we prove the tight bound of the Behzad and Vizing conjecture on total coloring for the corona product of two graphs G and H, when H is a cycle, a complete graph or a bipartite graph.
