Fixed Point Theory and Graph Theory: Foundations and Integrative Approaches

Mounted element idea and Graph thought presents an intersection among the theories of mounted aspect theorems that supply the stipulations less than which maps (single or multivalued) have suggestions and graph concept which makes use of mathematical constructions 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 maths in the back of geometric graph idea, which reviews the homes of a graph that involves nodes put in Euclidean area in order that edges could be further to attach issues which are with reference to each other. for instance, a set of timber scattered in a woodland and the affliction that's handed among them, a collection of nests of animals or birds on a area and the communique among them or communique 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 try out in polynomial time no matter if a matrix is completely unimodular? Matroid conception examines and solutions questions like those.

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

This publication presents an exhilarating heritage of the invention of Ramsey idea, and includes new study besides infrequent pictures of the mathematicians who built this conception, together with Paul Erdös, B. L. van der Waerden, and Henry Baudet.
