The Fascinating World of Graph Theory<br>Arthur Benjamin, Gary Chartrand & Ping Zhang "The Fascinating World of Graph Theory
Arthur Benjamin, Gary Chartrand & Ping Zhang

"In this attractive introduction to the world of graphs, the authors entice and enthuse readers through a number of fun problems which present various aspects of the subject. Many of these problems are familiar--the four-color problem, the Königsberg Bridge problem, and 'instant insanity'--while others are less well known or of a more serious nature. This book can be used in different ways--as an entertaining book on recreational mathematics or as an accessible textbook on graph theory. I warmly recommend it."--Robin J. Wilson, author of Introduction to Graph Theory
