Item description for Graphs, Networks & Algorithms by T. Schade Dieter Jungnickel...
From the reviews of the German edition: "Combinatorial optimization, along with graph algorithms and complexity theory is booming. This book treats the most prominent problems which are polynomially solvable. The Traveling Salesman Problem is discussed as a paradigm of an NP-complete problem. The text is well written, most exercises are quite enlightening and the hints are clear. Algorithms are described very thoroughly. The list of references is impressive and gives good guidance for further reading. The book can be recommended to beginners as an introductory text as well as for research and industry as a reference." (OPTIMA) In this corrected 2nd printing of the first edition the author has made some small modifications: some minor mistakes were corrected and updates to the bibliography provided.

Comprehensive book on graphs and networks Jul 21, 2008
This is a comprehensive book on graphs and networks. It is concise and terse with few excessive prose. It is not for a beginner who is learning graphs and networks for the first time. A beginner would do well to study other elementary books such as Graphs and Applications by Robin Wilson. That being said, readers with some knowledge of the subject will profit immensely by studying this well-written book.
NOT a good book for beginners Jan 20, 2008
It may be a good book for experts in Graph Theory but definitely not for beginners.
The content in this book is like a record of discussion in an expert meeting. It doesn't contain enough description which a text book should have. To summarize the cons:
* It always supposes you know every basic points without reviewing it. * It's lazy to give a figure to explain a complex theory or proof. * Also, proofs are simple in obscure text and really unclear. * It gives the definitions in the context without using bold text. You need to read very line to find an important definition. * It leaves too many things for reader to do.
However, covering everything of graph field in the contents may be a good point to mention about this book, which is attractive to buyers.
