Graph Theory: Flows, Matrices covers a number of topics in graph theory that are important in the major areas of application. It provides graph theoretic tools that can be readily and efficiently applied to problems in operational research, computer science, electrical engineering, and economics. Emphasizing didactic principles, the book derives theorems and proofs from a detailed analysis of the structure of graphs. The easy-to-follow algorithms can be readily converted to computer codes in high-level programming languages. Requiring knowledge of the basic concepts of graph theory and a familiarity with some simple results, the book also includes 100 exercises with solutions to help readers gain experience and 131 diagrams to aid in the understanding of concepts and proofs.
