"The book gives a comprehensive description and handling on arguably one of the most important notions of combinatorics-graph coloring. ... The book is nicely written, and carries a big pile of information valuable for both users and researchers in the field." (Andras Sandor Pluhar, Mathematical Reviews, February, 2017)"This well-written book will serve as a utilitarian guide to graph coloring and its practical applications. It includes many definitions, theorems, proofs, algorithms, and pointers for further reading. The book will be helpful for teaching courses on graph coloring to students of mathematics and computer science. I strongly recommend it for the intended audience." (S. V. Nagaraj, Computing Reviews,, June, 2016)"The book is a comprehensive guide to graph colouring algorithms. ... The book is a nice textbook for both undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of operations research and theoretical computer science. ... Finally, it is a good source of knowledge for practitioners." (Marcin Anholcer, zbMATH 1330.05002, 2016)
