Description

"Innovative introductory text . . . clear exposition of unusual and more advanced topics . . . Develops material to substantial level." — American Mathematical Monthly "Refreshingly different . . . an ideal training ground for the mathematical process of investigation, generalization, and conjecture leading to the discovery of proofs and counterexamples." — American Mathematical Monthly " . . . An excellent textbook for an undergraduate course." — Australian Computer Journal A stimulating view of mathematics that appeals to students as well as teachers, this undergraduate-level text is written in an informal style that does not sacrifice depth or challenge. Based on 20 years of teaching by the leading researcher in graph theory, it offers a solid foundation on the subject. This revised and augmented edition features new exercises, simplifications, and other improvements suggested by classroom users and reviewers. Topics include basic graph theory, colorings of graphs, circuits and cycles, labeling graphs, drawings of graphs, measurements of closeness to planarity, graphs on surfaces, and applications and algorithms. 1994 edition.
