Book Description

This outstanding introductory treatment of theory and its applications has had a long life in the instruction of advanced undergraduates and graduate students in all areas that require knowledge of this subject. The first nine chapters constitute an excellent overall introduction, requiring only some knowledge of set theory and matrix algebra. Topics include paths and circuits, trees and fundamental circuits, planar and dual , vector and matrix representation of , and related subjects.
The remaining six chapters are more advanced, covering graph theory algorithms and programs, graphs in switching and coding theory, electrical analysis by graph theory, graph theory in operations research, and more. Instructors may combine these chapters with the preceding material for courses in a variety of fields, including electrical engineering, , operations research, and applied .
