Graph theory: An algorithmic approach by Nicos Christofides

By Nicos Christofides

It's always useful and visually attractive, to depict a few scenario that's of curiosity by means of a graphical determine along with issues (vertices)—representing entities—and traces (links) becoming a member of definite pairs of those vertices and representing relationships among them. Such figures are recognized through the final identify graphs and this booklet is dedicated to their learn. Graphs are met with in all places below varied names: ''structures'' in civil engineering, ''networks'' in electric engineering, ''sociograms'', ''communication structures'' and ''organizational structures'' in sociology and economics, ''molecular structure'' in chemistry, ''road maps'', gasoline or electrical energy ''distribution networks'' etc.
