Graph Theory in America (Princeton University Press)
Friday, 27 January 2023

In this book Robin Wilson focuses on the development of graph theory in North America from 1876 to 1976, from the point at which James Joseph Sylvester took up his appointment as the first professor of mathematics at the Johns Hopkins University to the solution of the longstanding four color problem in 1976 by Kenneth Appel and Wolfgang Haken of the University of Illinois.


Tracing graph theory’s trajectory across its first century, this book looks at influential figures in the field, both familiar and less known, and traces how a remarkable area of mathematics landed on American soil, took root, and flourished.
