Promotional Information

This thoroughly revised second edition of Shimon Even's Graph Algorithms explains algorithms directly and intuitively, in formal but simple language.

About the Author

Shimon Even (1935-2004) was a pioneering researcher on graph algorithms and cryptography. He was a highly influential educator who played a major role in establishing computer science education in Israel at the Weizmann Institute and the Technion. He served as a source of professional inspiration and as a role model for generations of students and researchers. He is the author of Algorithmic Combinatorics (1973) and Graph Algorithms (1979).

Reviews

'[This book] provides an intensive study of the main topics of the field, with [a] list of problems following each topic and explains algorithms in a formal but simple language with a direct and intuitive presentation. Its usage is not limited to being a textbook for an upper-level undergraduate or a graduate course in mathematics. Thanks to the rich set of results covered it can also be used as a reference book for postgraduate students and researchers in the area of Graph algorithms ... Besides being extremely useful to those who are interested in theory of graphs and design of graph algorithms, instructors can also benefit from the easy way it presents various ideas and approaches to problem solutions.' Vladimir Lacko, Zentralblatt MATH
'The book is an excellent introduction to (algorithmic) graph theory, and seems to be a good choice for a class on the topic, or for self-study. Each chapter comes with its own selected bibliography, and ends with a collection of problems to help the reader check his or her understanding of the material presented in that chapter. Proofs are always provided and are also the topic of a few selected exercises.' Anthony Labarre, SIGACT News
"If you use graph algorithms, you should get a copy." Paul Cull, Computing Reviews
"Like the original, the second edition has an unmistakable style and presentation that makes the material both clear and deep. By restricting the treatment to graph algorithms--and not to algorithms in general--the book, in around 200 pages, expounds deeply on the subject in ways normally reserved for literature reviews. On the other hand, the presentation is so clear that, as a side benefit, readers are instructed by example how to think about and present complex material. Thus, even for an audience only tangentially interested in graph algorithms, this remains required reading." William Fahle, Computing Reviews
