The original title of this book was Graphs as Mathematical Models, and the focus is on modeling. It is for a non-mathematician audience because it keeps notations to a minimum and there is no heavy duty matrix algebra. Jorg rated it it was amazing Aug 27, The book promises to be introductory, and I have now been introduced — the next time I run cahrtrand a stumper while I’m building software, I feel I have a far grqph chance of recognizing it as a known problem with a standard solution.

I more-or-less minored in math in college and have taken a handful of courses over subsequent 10 years, and I found nearly every proof and problem accessible, sometimes requiring some effort, but never insurmountably hard. This is a great text to have on hand for an introductory course and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for such a text. Wilson Limited preview –
