Book description

In this second edition of the now classic text, the already extensive treatment given in the first edition has been heavily revised by the author. The addition of two new sections, numerous new results and 150 references means that this represents a comprehensive account of random graph theory. The theory (founded by Erdös and Rényi in the late fifties) aims to estimate the number of graphs of a given degree that exhibit certain properties. It not only has numerous combinatorial applications, but also serves as a model for the probabilistic treatment of more complicated random structures. This book, written by an acknowledged expert in the field, can be used by mathematicians, computer scientists and electrical engineers, as well as people working in biomathematics. It is self-contained, and with numerous exercises in each chapter, is ideal for advanced courses or self study.

Reviews

‘… contains an enormous amount of material, assembled by one who has played a leading role in the development of the area.’

‘This book, written by one of the leaders in the field, has become the bible of random graphs. This book is primarily for mathematicians interested in graph theory and combinatorics with probability and computing, but it could also be of interest to computer scientists. It is self-contained and lists numerous exercises in each chapter. As such, it is an excellent textbook for advanced courses or for self-study.‘

‘There are many beautiful results in the theory of random graphs, and the main aim of the book is to introduce the reader and extensive account of a substantial body of methods and results from the theory of random graphs. This is a classic textbook suitable not only for mathematicians. It has clearly passed the test of time.‘
