PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION
The Handbook of Graph Theory is the most comprehensive single-source guide to graph theory ever published. Best-selling authors Jonathan Gross and Jay Yellen assembled an outstanding team of experts to contribute overviews of more than 50 of the most significant topics in graph theory-including those related to algorithmic and optimization approaches as well as "pure" graph theory. They then carefully edited the compilation to produce a unified, authoritative work ideal for ready reference.

Designed and edited with non-experts in mind, the Handbook of Graph Theory makes information easy to find and easy to understand. The treatment of each topic includes lists of essential definitions and facts accompanied by examples, tables, remarks, and in some areas, conjectures and open problems. Each section contains a glossary of terms relevant to that topic and an extensive bibliography of references that collectively form an extensive guide to the primary research literature.
