Graph theory is a fast-developing discipline and has, over the past few decades, been seen to have important applications, particularly in operations research and in computer science. For this reason there is a need for a reference in the area, comprehensively cataloguing the properties ofgraphs and accessible to both graph theorists and other researchers. This book contains a wealth of information, including over 10000 diagrams and extensive tables of associated properties. It is the first book to present this information on such a scale, and as such will be an invaluable resource.

Editorial Reviews

`Review from previous edition 'This book is an amazing work of art by two authors who must be devoted to beauty and symmetry to a degree far beyond most graph theorists. Here are almost 400 pages of diagrams of graphs such as trees, regular graphs, self-complementary graphs, planar graphs,snarks, signed graphs, digraphs, tournaments etc. etc. etc... Within a few days of its arrival, I used my copy several times ... (It) doesn't go on the shelf. It has a front row seat on the real desk top. On behalf of all who love graoh theory, I salute the authors for their remarkable acheivement...''E.M. Palmer, Zentralblatt Math 908/99 35
