Product Details Graph theory is used today in the physical sciences, social sciences, 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.

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 of graph theory in this highly readable and thoroughly enjoyable book. Six Degrees of Paul Erdos Contrary to popular belief, mathematicians do quite often have fun.

Take, for example, the phenomenon of the Erdos number. Paul Erdos — , a 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. 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.
