Here is a solid introduction to graph theory, covering Dirac's theorem on k-connected graphs, Harary-Nashwilliam's theorem on the hamiltonicity of line graphs, Toida-McKee's characterization of Eulerian graphs, Fournier's proof of Kuratowski's theorem on planar graphs, and more. The book does not presuppose deep knowledge of any branch of mathematics, but requires only the basics of mathematics.
Discrete Mathematics has permeated the whole of mathematics so much so it has now come to be taught even at the high school level. This book presents the basics of Discrete Mathematics and its applications to day-to-day problems in several areas. This book is intended for undergraduate students of Computer Science, Mathematics and Engineering. A number of examples have been given to enhance the understanding of concepts. The programming languages used are Pascal and C.
Already an international bestseller, with the release of this greatly enhanced second edition, Graph Theory and Its Applications is now an even better choice as a textbook for a variety of courses -- a textbook that will continue to serve your students as a reference for years to come. The superior explanations, broad coverage, and abundance of illustrations and exercises that positioned this as the premier graph theory text remain, but are now augmented by a broad range of improvements. Nearly 200 pages have been added for this edition, including nine new sections and hundreds of new exercises, mostly non-routine. What else is new? New chapters on measurement and analytic graph theory Suppl...
Conveying ideas in a user-friendly style, this book has been designed for a course in Applied Algebra. The book covers graph algorithms, basic algebraic structures, coding theory and cryptography. It will be most suited for senior undergraduates and beginning graduate students in mathematics and computer science as also to individuals who want to have a knowledge of the below-mentioned topics. Provides a complete discussion on several graph algorithms such as Prims algorithm and Kruskals algorithm for sending a minimum cost spanning tree in a weighted graph, Dijkstras single source shortest path algorithm, Floyds algorithm, Warshalls algorithm, Kuhn-Munkres Algorithm. In addition to DFS and ...
This new book offers a thorough guide to the theory and methods of progressive censoring for practitioners and professionals in applied statistics, quality control, life testing and reliability testing. In many industrial experiments involving lifetimes of machines or units, experiments have to be terminated early due to a variety of circumstances. Samples that arise from such experiments are called censored samples, and a new, efficient alternative method is referred to as "progressive censoring" (where the removal of live units at time of failure is employed). Progressive Censoringfirst introduces progressive sampling foundations, then discusses various properties of progressive samples. It also describes how to make exact or approximate inferences for the different statistical models with samples based on progressive censoring schemes. With many concrete examples, the book points out the greater efficiency gained by using this scheme instead of classical right-censoring methods.
Publisher Fact Sheet This book is an outgrowth of a two-year research project focused on the subcontracted women workers in Asia. the authors explore the impact of subcontracted work in different national settings making links to the global economic dynamics. the purpose of the book is to offer insights regarding the gendered nature of subcontracted work in order to propose policy alternatives.
Enduring Splendor focuses on the rich and diverse silver jewelry traditions of India's Thar Desert region, stretching across the western states of Rajasthan and Gujarat. These traditions are considered against the background of the five-thousand-year history of jewelry making across the vast Indian Subcontinent. Drawing on recent field research carried out in the city of Jaisalmer, a thriving center of contemporary jewelry production, Enduring Splendor explores for the first time the life and work of four sonis (silversmiths or goldsmiths). To contextualize this recent production, numerous illustrations of very fine examples of ninteenth- and twentieth-century jewelry types that are still worn are included. These objects have been borrowed from the Ronald and Maxine Linde Collection of Jewelry and Ritual Arts of India, part of a promised gift to UCLA, where it will find its future home with the Fowler Museum. The Linde Collection is one of the finest and most comprehensive collections of Indian jewelry in the world. This volume highlights elaborate rural styles rendered in silver as well as selected ornate examples, largely associated with the elite, made with gold and gemstones.
