    One thought on “Graph Theory

    1. dead letter office

      if you want to know more graph theory than you can get from this book, you probably don't need me to tell you where to look. surprisingly readable, and it doesn't assume much prior knowledge. beats the crap out of bollobasw available free online. diestel-graph-theory/GrTh.

    2. Šimon Tóth

      I must admit that I really don't understand why this book is so highly rated. It is a good reference material. But as a learning material it's really horrible.The definitions are way to obtuse (confusingly similar notation used for distinct things, at several places new terms are used without ever being defined) and terse for learning. Unless you have someone at hand who already understands the presented notions you will slog through the content very slowly.

    3. Dan Boeriu

      Too terse for my taste. The proofs are too telegraphic, probably with the intention of treating a large number of theorems / results. It's an excellent compendium (a lot of new material) but it's not a book to learn Graph Theory from.

    4. Nicolas

      I read this book outside of a course, without any pressures, because I'm interested in Systems Science (which often uses Graph Theory).I've also never read a GTM book before, so though I'd see what it was like.The writing is clear. Each chapter is well introduced, the notes at the end are very helpful, being separate means that they don't interfere with the reasoning, but the background rounds out the material very well.The progression from one chapter to the next is clear and made sense to me.T [...]
