Fundamentals of Performance Evaluation of Computer-Based Systems: Discrete Event Simulation Using Excel/VBA

David Elizandro, Hamdy Taha
May 15, 2017

This book presents fundamental modeling tools, queueing theory, and discrete event simulation for evaluating computer-based systems. Assuming some familiarity with modeling concepts and Excel, the text is an excellent resource for those who need to learn the basics of discrete simulation and for...

Discrete Mathematics and Applications, Second Edition

Kevin Ferland
May 05, 2017

This book is intended for a one-semester course in discrete mathematics. Such a course is typically taken by mathematics, mathematics education, and computer science majors, usually in their sophomore year. Calculus is not a prerequisite to use this book. Part one focuses on how to write proofs,...

Graph Polynomials

Yongtang Shi, Matthias Dehmer, Xueliang Li, Ivan Gutman
December 06, 2016

This book covers both theoretical and practical results for graph polynomials. Graph polynomials have been developed for measuring combinatorial graph invariants and for characterizing graphs. Various problems in pure and applied graph theory or discrete mathematics can be treated and solved...

Handbook of Mathematical Induction: Theory and Applications

David S. Gunderson
November 16, 2016

Handbook of Mathematical Induction: Theory and Applications shows how to find and write proofs via mathematical induction. This comprehensive book covers the theory, the structure of the written proof, all standard exercises, and hundreds of application examples from nearly every area of...

Handbook of Product Graphs, Second Edition

Richard Hammack, Wilfried Imrich, Sandi Klavžar
November 16, 2016

Handbook of Product Graphs, Second Edition examines the dichotomy between the structure of products and their subgraphs. It also features the design of efficient algorithms that recognize products and their subgraphs and explores the relationship between graph parameters of the product and factors....

October 19, 2016

Get an In-Depth Understanding of Graph Drawing Techniques, Algorithms, Software, and Applications The Handbook of Graph Drawing and Visualization provides a broad, up-to-date survey of the field of graph drawing. It covers topological and geometric foundations, algorithms, software systems, and...

Graphs, Algorithms, and Optimization, Second Edition

William Kocay, Donald L. Kreher
September 26, 2016

The second edition of this popular book presents the theory of graphs from an algorithmic viewpoint. The authors present the graph theory in a rigorous, but informal style and cover most of the main areas of graph theory. The ideas of surface topology are presented from an intuitive point of view....

Big Data of Complex Networks

Matthias Dehmer, Frank Emmert-Streib, Stefan Pickl, Andreas Holzinger
August 18, 2016

Big Data of Complex Networks presents and explains the methods from the study of big data that can be used in analysing massive structural data sets, including both very large networks and sets of graphs. As well as applying statistical analysis techniques like sampling and bootstrapping in an...

Simulation for Applied Graph Theory Using Visual C++

Shaharuddin Salleh, Zuraida Abal Abas
June 29, 2016

The tool for visualization is Microsoft Visual C++. This popular software has the standard C++ combined with the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) libraries for Windows visualization. This book explains how to create a graph interactively, solve problems in graph theory with minimum number of C++...

Graphs & Digraphs, Sixth Edition

Gary Chartrand, Linda Lesniak, Ping Zhang
December 22, 2015

Graphs & Digraphs masterfully employs student-friendly exposition, clear proofs, abundant examples, and numerous exercises to provide an essential understanding of the concepts, theorems, history, and applications of graph theory. Fully updated and thoughtfully reorganized to make reading and...

Handbook of Graph Theory, Combinatorial Optimization, and Algorithms

Krishnaiyan “KT” Thulasiraman, Subramanian Arumugam, Andreas Brandstädt, Takao Nishizeki
December 14, 2015

The fusion between graph theory and combinatorial optimization has led to theoretically profound and practically useful algorithms, yet there is no book that currently covers both areas together. Handbook of Graph Theory, Combinatorial Optimization, and Algorithms is the first to present a unified,...

Introduction to Enumerative and Analytic Combinatorics, Second Edition

Miklos Bona
October 02, 2015

Introduction to Enumerative and Analytic Combinatorics fills the gap between introductory texts in discrete mathematics and advanced graduate texts in enumerative combinatorics. The book first deals with basic counting principles, compositions and partitions, and generating functions. It then...
