Graph Classes: A Survey

Andreas Brandstädt

This well-organized reference is a definitive encyclopedia for the literature on graph classes. It contains a survey of more than 200 classes of graphs, organized by types of properties used to define and characterize the classes, citing key theorems and literature references for each. The authors state results without proof, providing readers with easy access to far more key theorems than are commonly found in other mathematical texts. Interconnections between graph classes are also provided to make the book useful to a variety of readers. If you've had difficulty keeping track of the literature in this field or are confused by the use of different terminology for the same known results, then this comprehensive book is for you. It will be especially useful to anyone who works with special classes of graphs in understanding, refereeing, and writing papers.
