Introduction to Graph Theory – Douglas B. West – 2nd Edition

This book fills a need for a thorough to graph that features both the understanding and writing of proofs about graphs. Verification that algorithms work is emphasized more than their complexity.

An effective use of examples, and huge of interesting exercises, demonstrate the topics of trees and distance, matchings and factors, connectivity and paths, graph coloring, edges and cycles, and planar graphs. For those who need to learn to make coherent arguments in the fields of mathematics and computer science.

The revision for the second emphasizes making the text easier for the to learn from and easier for the instructor to teach from. There have not been great changes in the overall content of the book, but the presentation has been modified to make the more accessible, especially in the early parts of the book. Some of the changes are discussed in more detail later in this preface.
