Finally, a mathematical gem!
Topics in Graph Theory
The Holy Grail of Graph Theory
Chemistry, Neural Nets, Matrix Manipulation -- all here Chartrand uses applications from every field of interest (e.g. finance, Chemistry, Physics, games, social psychology, computers, etc.)Who would have thought that while reading a math book that a friendly discussion of social psychology would pop-up?Well, that's how Chartrand is able to keep us moving through the pages; he uses the common to reveal the mysteries of Graph Theory. Who doesn't know about the Tower of Hanoi or the Knight's Tour or the one-boat-fox-and-chickens problems? All of these classics make for ready connecting points, leading us into profound restatements of well-known problems.Not much space is devoted to creating artificial problems for which we must be convinced need solving, and so the book is rather thin (a real bonus for those of us who don't want to spend a month in a math book). Picking up the book after having read it so long ago, I was happy to find that the chapters are nearly autonomous and can be profitably read by themselves -- so keep it as a reference and jump in as the need arises, you'll be both entertained and mathematically illumined. My only complaint is that the writing style is rather thick with mathematical lingo (seemingly) for the sake of being technically pithy.I am not convinced that such is necessary for a good math book.
Excellent overview for those with solid math background I definitely recommend this book for anyone interested in graph theory and to any serious software developer (which I why I picked it up).The ideas presented are directly applicable to that line of work. ... Read more |
2. Discrete Mathematics with Graph Theory (3rd Edition) by Edgar G. Goodaire, Michael M. Parmenter | |

Editorial Review Product Description Far more "user friendly" than the vast majority of similar books, this volume is truly written with the unsophisticated reader in mind. The pace is leisurely, but the authors are rigorous and maintain a serious attitude towards theorem proving throughout. Emphasizes "Active Reading" throughout, a skill vital to success in learning how to write proofs. Offers two sections on probability (2.4 and 2.5). Moves material on depth-first search, which previously comprised an entire (very short) chapter, to an earlier chapter where it fits more naturally. Rewrites section on RNA chains to include a new (and easier) algorithm for the recovery of an RNA chain from its complete enzyme digest. Provides true/false questions (with all answers in the back of the book) in every section. Features an appendix on matrices. A useful reference for mathematics enthusiasts who want to learn how to write proofs. Customer Reviews (14)

Very Interesting; Just the Right Pace
an introduction to an interesting subject --The second part is about Matrix theory, interlacing, strongly regular graph, two graph, generalized line graph, etc it is the main part of the book. --The third part is about cut, flows, Knots, etc. This book can serve as a nice introduction to thesubject of Graph theory. Nevertheless: --This book lacks some more example, for this see "distance regular graph". --It is sketchy on chromatic polynomial, planar graph. --The original book by Norman Biggs is shorter, smarter, nicer ...

list price: US$64.95 -- used & new: US$39.99 (price subject to change: see help) Asin: 0387984887 Average Customer Review: Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan | |
Editorial Review Product Description In addition to a modern treatment of the classical areas of graph theory such as coloring, matching, extremal theory, and algebraic graph theory, the book presents a detailed account of newer topics, including Szemer\'edi's Regularity Lemma and its use, Shelah's extension of the Hales-Jewett Theorem, the precise nature of the phase transition in a random graph process, the connection between electrical networks and random walks on graphs, and the Tutte polynomial and its cousins in knot theory. In no other branch of mathematics is it as vital to tackle and solve challenging exercises in order to master the subject. To this end, the book contains an unusually large number of well thought-out exercises: over 600 in total. Although some are straightforward, most of them are substantial, and others will stretch even the most able reader. Customer Reviews (5)
Bollobas
I have so many good things to say about this book...
Good Introduction, too many typos
Excellent in content, but somewhat challenging in narrative My only complaint, at the cost of perhaps half a star, is that his discussions and proofs often seem difficult to follow, as he will state something that to him seems quite obvious, yet to this reader often seemed a bit subtle, and would hence slow down the reading. Indeed, if these off-handed remarks were included as exercises at the end of each chapter, then the number of excercises would have swelled from the current 600 to well over one thousand ! Speaking of which, these 600+ exercises, although also representing another blessing of this book in that they add another degree of depth, tend to lack "starter" exercises, and go straight to the theory. But this is to be expected froma graduate text. Finally, for the reader whose research significantly intersects with graph theory, but may not be ready or willing to be initiated by Bollabas into the world of graph theory, I would recommend Dietsel's graduate text on the subject. His book covers similar topics, but may be more clearly and transparently, but with less depth and insight.
A good introduction book This book is just what I needed... ... Read more |

Editorial Review Product Description The third edition of this standard textbook of modern graph theory has been carefully revised, updated, and substantially extended. Covering all its major recent developments, Graph Theory can be used both as a reliable textbook for an introductory course and as a graduate text: on each topic it covers all the basic material in full detail, and adds one or two deeper results (again with detailed proofs) to illustrate the more advanced methods of that field.

Editorial Review Product Description Once considered an “unimportant” branch of topology, graph theory has come into its own through many important contributions to a wide range of fields – and is now one of the fastest-growing areas in discrete mathematics and computer science. This practical, intuitive book introduces basic concepts, definitions, theorems, and examples from graph theory. Presents a collection of interesting results from mathematics that involve key concepts and proof techniques. Covers design and analysis of computer algorithms for solving problems in graph theory. Discusses applications of graph theory to the sciences. Includes a collection of graph algorithms, written in Java, that are ready for compiling and running. For anyone interested in learning graph theory, discrete structures, or algorithmic design for graph problems. Customer Reviews (1)

Editorial Review Product Description Gross and Yellen take a comprehensive approach to graph theory that integrates careful exposition of classical developments with emerging methods, models, and practical needs. Their unparalleled treatment provides a text ideal for a two-semester course and a variety of one-semester classes, from an introductory one-semester course to courses slanted toward classical graph theory, operations research, data structures and algorithms, or algebra and topology.

great and comprehensive book on graph theory
Horrible textbook
Plain and simple: EXCELLENT book
great, comprehensive introduction In over 500 pages, this book covers a lot of ground beyond the basics, such as topology of graphs, graph operations and mappings, voltage graphs, and surface imbeddings.Definitions are very clear, propositions and proofs are stated very clearly, and there are shrink-wrapped algorithms if you just want to apply them. Requiring no previous knowledge of abstract algebra or graph theory, this is a great resource to have in your bookshelf.
