Book Description

Feb. 9 1994 0486678709 978-0486678702 1
A stimulating excursion into pure mathematics aimed at "the mathematically traumatized," but great fun for mathematical hobbyists and serious mathematicians as well. Requiring only high school algebra as mathematical background, the book leads the reader from simple graphs through planar graphs, Euler's formula, Platonic graphs, coloring, the genus of a graph, Euler walks, Hamilton walks, and a discussion of The Seven Bridges of Konigsberg. Exercises are included at the end of each chapter. "The topics are so well motivated, the exposition so lucid and delightful, that the book's appeal should be virtually universal . . . Every library should have several copies" — Choice. 1976 edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction Feb. 8 2011
Trudeau does a great job writing this introduction to graph theory. It's easy to follow and enjoyable to read. The section on the genus of a graph is very interesting.
A great book for people with very little mathematical knowledge which gives some insight to the world of mathematics and may even inspire. Still a very interesting read for anyone who has a moderate amount of experience in mathematics, just not in graph theory.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating start into graph theory. July 23 1999
Mr. Trudeau has done a fabulous job of introducing graph theory in a way which is understandable and intellectually provocative. He mentions that some of the problems are easy, and that some have been unsolved. In both cases, they both are fully illustrative of the subject matter. If you want to begin exploring graph theory, this book is for you!

This is a great little book to teach yourself introductory graph theory. It is very clear and readable, and contains all the basics.

Highly recommended!

Chapter on planar graphs is superbly done, with very easy to understand proofs and plenty of illustrations. Overall, a great introductory text

3.0 out of 5 stars Graph theory in (good) words. Feb. 16 2000
This book make you want to know more about graph theory. The concepts are first intuitively explained and then formally stated. The numerous examples are completely treated and then easy to follow. R. Trudeau devoted a large part of the book to the puzzling problems of planar graphs and coloring and explains them in a very pleasant manner. As a result, these problems almost appear as trivial (which of course is not the case).
The main criticism I would make is the following. This book is a corrected and enlarged version of another book. Unfortunately, the updating is not very convincing when the "four color problem" is a conjecture in the body of the book and a theorem in footnotes and afterwords.
