Graphs & Digraphs masterfully employs student-friendly exposition, transparent proofs, considerable examples, and various workouts to supply an important realizing of the thoughts, theorems, historical past, and purposes of graph theory.

Fully up-to-date and thoughtfully reorganized to make analyzing and finding fabric more uncomplicated for teachers and scholars, the Sixth Edition of this bestselling, classroom-tested text:

  • Adds greater than one hundred sixty new exercises
  • Presents many new thoughts, theorems, and examples
  • Includes contemporary significant contributions to long-standing conjectures equivalent to the Hamiltonian Factorization Conjecture, 1-Factorization Conjecture, and Alspach’s Conjecture on graph decompositions
  • Supplies an evidence of the correct graph theorem
  • Features a revised bankruptcy at the probabilistic process in graph concept with many effects built-in in the course of the text

At the top of the publication are indices and lists of mathematicians’ names, phrases, symbols, and priceless references. there's additionally a piece giving tricks and options to all odd-numbered workouts. a whole options guide is offered with qualifying path adoption.

Fixed Point Theory and Graph Theory: Foundations and Integrative Approaches

Mounted element thought and Graph idea offers an intersection among the theories of mounted aspect theorems that provide the stipulations below which maps (single or multivalued) have ideas and graph thought which makes use of mathematical buildings to demonstrate the connection among ordered pairs of items by way of their vertices and directed edges.

Random Geometric Graphs (Oxford Studies in Probability)

This monograph presents and explains the math at the back of geometric graph idea, which reports the houses of a graph that contains nodes positioned in Euclidean house in order that edges will be extra to attach issues which are as regards to each other. for instance, a suite of timber scattered in a woodland and the affliction that's handed among them, a suite of nests of animals or birds on a zone and the verbal exchange among them or verbal exchange among communications stations or nerve cells.

Matroid Theory (Oxford Graduate Texts in Mathematics)

* what's the essence of the similarity among linearly self sustaining units of columns of a matrix and forests in a graph? * Why does the grasping set of rules produce a spanning tree of minimal weight in a attached graph? * will we attempt in polynomial time no matter if a matrix is completely unimodular? Matroid concept examines and solutions questions like those.

The Mathematical Coloring Book: Mathematics of Coloring and the Colorful Life of its Creators

This booklet presents a thrilling heritage of the invention of Ramsey idea, and comprises new learn besides infrequent images of the mathematicians who constructed this conception, together with Paul Erdös, B. L. van der Waerden, and Henry Baudet.
