Overview

After an introduction to the subject area and a concise treatment of the technical foundations for the subsequent chapters, this book features 14 chapters on state-of-the-art graph drawing software systems, ranging from general "tool boxes'' to customized software for various applications. These chapters are written by leading experts: they follow a uniform scheme and can be read independently from each other. The text covers many industrial applications.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This very interesting volume presents fourteen different software packages devoted to find (aesthetically nice) drawings of large respectively huge graphs. … All these packages are described by their developers who are all leading experts in the field of graph drawing. … The volume … can insistently be recommended to researchers in operations research (especially graph theory) and all practitioners who deal with large data sets and need to find relations between the data." (Stephan Dempe, OR News, Issue 25, 2005)

"The spacious layout of the text, interleaved with so many colourful figures, makes the book a pleasure to read. … While it is clearly of interest to members of the graph drawing community, this book is in fact geared to potential users of the software tools in other areas … . it definitely deserves a place on a library’s bookshelves as well as on the bookshelves of those who wish to enhance their teaching and research presentations with compelling depictions of graphs." (M Anjos, Journal of the Operational Research Society, Vol. 56 (5), 2005)
