About For Books Algebraic Graph Theory: Morphisms, Monoids and Matrices Best Sellers Rank : #4

Graph models are extremely useful for almost all applications and applicators as they play an important role as structuring tools. They allow to model net structures - like roads, computers, telephones - instances of abstract data structures - like lists, stacks, trees - and functional or object oriented programming. In turn, graphs are models for mathematical objects, like categories and functors.This highly self-contained book about algebraic graph theory is written with a view to keep the lively and unconventional atmosphere of a spoken text to communicate the enthusiasm the author feels about this subject. The focus is on homomorphisms and endomorphisms, matrices and eigenvalues. It ends with a challenging chapter on the topological question of embeddability of Cayley graphs on surfaces.
