Introduction To Graph Theory – Gary Chartrand – Google Books
Mathematics Applied Mathematics Science: Description Graph theory is used today in the physical sciences, social introducctory, computer science, and other areas. Introductory Graph Theory presents a nontechnical introduction to this exciting field in a clear, lively, and informative style.
Author Gary Chartrand covers the important elementary topics of graph theory and its applications. In addition, he presents a large variety of proofs designed to strengthen mathematical techniques and offers challenging opportunities to have fun with mathematics. Ten major topics — profusely illustrated — include: A useful Appendix covers Sets, Relations, Functions, and Proofs, and a section devoted to exercises — with answers, hints, and solutions — is especially valuable to anyone encountering graph theory for the first time.
Undergraduate mathematics students at every level, puzzlists, and mathematical hobbyists will find well-organized coverage of the fundamentals yheory graph theory in this highly readable and thoroughly enjoyable book.

Paul Erdosa prominent and productive Hungarian mathematician who traveled the world collaborating with other mathematicians on his research papers. Ultimately, Erdos published about 1, papers, by far the most published by any individual mathematician. Abouta group of Erdos’s friends and collaborators created the concept of the “Erdos number” to define the “collaborative distance” between Erdos and other mathematicians.
Erdos himself was assigned an Erdos number of 0. A mathematician who collaborated directly with Erdos himself on a paper there are such individuals has an Erdos number of 1. A mathematician who collaborated with one of those mathematicians would have an Erdos number of 2, and so on — there are several thousand mathematicians with a 2. From this humble beginning, the mathematical elaboration of the Erdos number quickly became more and more elaborate, involving mean Erdos numbers, finite Erdos numbers, and others.
In all, it is believed that aboutmathematicians have an assigned Erdos number now, and 90 percent of the world’s active mathematicians have an Erdos number lower than 8.
In fact there are some chartranf This is all leading up to the fact that Gary Chartrand, author of Dover’s Introductory Graph Theory, has an Erdos number of 1 — and is one of many Dover authors who share this honor.
