**From the reviews:** "Béla Bollobás introductory direction on graph conception merits to be regarded as a watershed within the improvement of this concept as a major educational topic. ... The publication has chapters on electric networks, flows, connectivity and matchings, extremal difficulties, colouring, Ramsey conception, random graphs, and graphs and teams. every one bankruptcy starts off at a measured and delicate speed. Classical effects are proved and new perception is equipped, with the examples on the finish of every bankruptcy absolutely supplementing the text... in spite of this this permits an advent not just to a few of the deeper effects yet, extra vitally, offers outlines of, and enterprise insights into, their proofs. hence in an basic textual content e-book, we achieve an total realizing of famous commonplace effects, and but even as consistent tricks of, and directions into, the better degrees of the topic. it really is this point of the e-book which may still warrantly it an enduring position within the literature." #*Bulletin* *of the London Mathematical Society*#1

Within the spectrum of arithmetic, graph conception which stories a mathe matical constitution on a collection of parts with a binary relation, as a well-known self-discipline, is a relative newcomer. In fresh 3 a long time the fascinating and speedily starting to be sector of the topic abounds with new mathematical devel opments and critical functions to real-world difficulties.

Unless every edge of Gk incident with X k is a bridge. Prove that if G has an Euler circuit then the trail X 1X 2 •.. Xl constructed by the algorithm is an Euler circuit. 24. A graph G is randomly Eulerian from a vertex x if any maximal trail starting at x is an Euler circuit. ) Prove that a non-empty graph G is randomly Eulerian from X iff G has an Euler circuit and x is contained in each cycle of G. 25. Let F be a forest. Add a vertex x to F and join x to each vertex of odd degree in F. Prove that the graph obtained in this way is randomly Eulerian from x.

Denote by Z(G) the subspace of CI(G) spanned by the vectors ZL as L runs over the set of cycles; Z(G) is the cycle space of G. Let now P be a partition V = VI U V2 of the vertex set of G. Consider the set (VI' V2 ) of edges from VI to V2 ; such a set of edges is called a cut. There is a vector up in CI(G) called a cut vector, naturally associated with this partition P: up(ei) = 1 if ei goes from VI to V2 { -1 if ei goes from V2 to VI a if e ~ E(VI , V2 ). We write U(G) for the subspace of the edge space CI(G) spanned by all the cut vectors up; U(G) is the cut (or cocycle) space of G.

Fill in the small gap in the proof of Lemma 15: show that if cases (i) and (ii) do not apply then there are two adjacent vertices of degree 4. Notes Theorem 14 is in K. Kuratowski, Sur Ie probIeme des courbes gauches en topologie, Fund. Math. 15 (1930) 271-283; for a simpler proof see G. A. Dirac and S. Schuster, A theorem of Kuratowski, Indag. Math. 16 (1954) 343-348. The theorem ofS. A. Amitsur and J. Levitzki (Theorem 14) is in Minimal identities for algebras, Proc. Amer. Math. Soc. 1 (1950) 449-463; the proof given in the text is based on R.
