A Kaleidoscopic View of Graph Colorings by Ping Zhang

By Ping Zhang

This e-book describes kaleidoscopic themes that experience built within the region of graph shades. Unifying present fabric on graph coloring, this ebook describes present details on vertex and side colors in graph conception, together with harmonious shades, majestic hues, kaleidoscopic shades and binomial colours. lately there were a few breakthroughs in vertex shades that provide upward thrust to different colours in a graph, reminiscent of swish labelings of graphs which have been reconsidered below the language of colors.

The issues provided during this e-book comprise pattern certain proofs and illustrations, which depicts components which are frequently missed. This publication is perfect for graduate scholars and researchers in graph concept, because it covers a large diversity of themes and makes connections among contemporary advancements and recognized components in graph theory.
