Learning Graph TheoryWhat are some good resources for a beginner to get an overview of graph theory? #2 20121227 02:59:35
Re: Learning Graph TheoryHi muxdemux; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20121227 03:58:51
Re: Learning Graph Theory
The part where I become a good computer scientist, mainly. I don't really enjoy theory in mathematics for its own sake. #4 20121227 04:02:33

Re: Learning Graph TheoryI learned graph theory from "Graph Theory and Its Applications" by Yellen and Gross. There is some coding info in it and I found the book very readable. Perhaps your local university library has this one or similar. Last edited by pellerinb (20121227 04:51:36) Prime numbers have got to be the neatest things; they are like atoms. Composites are two or more primes held together by multiplication. In biology, we use math like we know what we are talking about. Sad isn't it. #6 20121227 05:33:51

Re: Learning Graph Theory
It's not really the kind of thing I was looking for, though if it's readable and targets CS students it might be worth a look.
This is exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for, though I don't think the page has been updated in 4 odd years  which is a pity. #8 20121227 06:12:36
Re: Learning Graph TheoryLook for that textbook online if you do not already have it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Learning Graph TheoryI have visited your link which is very awesome for me. I really need it. I would like to say Thanks for sharing it. #10 20140404 23:52:17
Re: Learning Graph TheoryI like Dots and Lines 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #11 20140405 00:19:49
Re: Learning Graph TheoryHere's a book on graph theory with Sage: latestr1991 "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #12 20140405 00:27:34
Re: Learning Graph TheoryIntroduction to Graph Theory by Robin Wilson. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
