Book Description

A Tour Through Graph Theory introduces graph theory to students who are not mathematics majors. Rather than featuring formal mathematical proofs, the book focuses on explanations and logical reasoning. It also includes thoughtful discussions of historical problems and modern questions. The book inspires readers to learn by working through examples, drawing graphs and exploring concepts.

This book distinguishes itself from others covering the same topic. It strikes a balance of focusing on accessible problems for non-mathematical students while providing enough material for a semester-long course.

  • Employs graph theory to teach mathematical reasoning
  • Expressly written for non-mathematical students
  • Promotes critical thinking and problem solving
  • Provides rich examples and clear explanations without using proofs
