A Textbook of Graph Theory (Universitext)

Graph idea skilled a huge development within the twentieth century. one of many major purposes for this phenomenon is the applicability of graph thought in different disciplines similar to physics, chemistry, psychology, sociology, and theoretical machine technological know-how. This textbook presents a fantastic historical past within the uncomplicated themes of graph thought, and is meant for a complicated undergraduate or starting graduate path in graph theory.
 
This moment version contains new chapters: one on domination in graphs and the opposite at the spectral homes of graphs, the latter including a dialogue on graph energy.  The bankruptcy on graph colorations has been enlarged, protecting extra issues similar to homomorphisms and colors and the individuality of the Mycielskian as much as isomorphism.  This e-book additionally introduces numerous attention-grabbing themes corresponding to Dirac's theorem on k-connected graphs, Harary-Nashwilliam's theorem at the hamiltonicity of line graphs, Toida-McKee's characterization of Eulerian graphs, the Tutte matrix of a graph, Fournier's evidence of Kuratowski's theorem on planar graphs, the evidence of the nonhamiltonicity of the Tutte graph on forty six vertices, and a concrete software of triangulated graphs.
