Graphs and Hypergraphs

£39.99

Product description

Since 1957 when the author published the first modern book on graph theory, this field has expanded geometrically in depth and importance. This new book deals with the present status of, and new trends in, graph theory from a unifying point of view. It also offers a systematic study of hypergraphs which both generalises and greatly simplifies a large part of the theory of finite graphs, at once providing a new line of attack on the problems of graph theory. Some new contributions to this theory, by Professor Berge and his students, are published here for the first time. The combinatorial aspect of matroid theory and network theory as a basis for graph theory are also included. Frequent use is made of practical examples so as to illustrate the wide range of possible applications of the theory, exercises are added at the end of each chapter. The first four chapters will also be of interest to operations research students and to those who apply graph theory in other fields, such as group theory, probability, genetics, computer science, theoretical physics, etc... The book is showing signs of age, with slightly yellowing pages. The dust jacket has a small closed tear on the front, approx. 2.5 cm, there are foxing marks on the top edge of the text block. The hard cover of the book is slightly bumped at the corners, all otherwise in a very good condition.
Tight text block, fascinating and clear text which is enhanced by numerous crisp graphs, intriguing diagrams and elegant formulae.
