Graph Theory and Its Applications (2ND 06 Edition)by Jonathan L. Gross
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:Already an international bestseller, with the release of this greatly enhanced second edition, Graph Theory and Its Applications is now an even better choice as a textbook for a variety of courses — a textbook that will continue to serve your students as a reference for years to come.
The superior explanations, broad coverage, and abundance of illustrations and exercises that positioned this as the premier graph theory text remain, but are now augmented by a broad range of improvements. Nearly 200 pages have been added for this edition, including nine new sections and hundreds of new exercises, mostly nonroutine. What else is new? New chapters on measurement and analytic graph theory Supplementary exercises in each chapter  ideal for reinforcing, reviewing, and testing. Solutions and hints, often illustrated with figures, to selected exercises  nearly 50 pages worth Reorganization and extensive revisions in more than half of the existing chapters for smoother flow of the exposition Foreshadowing  the first three chapters now preview a number of concepts, mostly via the exercises, to pique the interest of reader 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 twosemester course and a variety of onesemester classes, from an introductory onesemester course to courses slanted toward classical graph theory, operations research, data structures and algorithms, or algebra and topology. Book News Annotation:Covering both classical developments and emerging methods and models, this text on graphs and their applications emphasizes the conceptual aspects of graph theory at the introductory graduate or advanced undergraduate level. Authors Gross (computer science, Columbia U.) and Yellen (mathematics, Rollins College) first present chapters or graph representation, basic properties, modeling, and applications. They then present the underpinnings of topological graph theory. Graph coloring and related topics of cliques, independence numbers, and graph factorization are addressed next. Graph measurement, special digraph models, and network flows are then examined. The remaining chapter are concerned with enumeration, specification by voltage graphs, and constructing nonplanar layouts.
