This app can download and display all the eBook editions of the Springer Graduate Text 173, Graph Theory, by Reinhard Diestel. The book is currently available in English, German, Chinese, Japanese and Russian.

The purchase of any edition in a given language entitles you to free downloads of all other editions - past, present and future - in that language.

Each eBook comes in high-quality searchable PDF; the same that was used to produce the corresponding print edition. The cross-references in the text and in the margins of the English and the German editions are active links: click on the "3.1" in a reference to Lemma 3.1 to be taken to that lemma.

The eBook is not printable. A Professional edition of the book, which can be annotated and printed, is available from the author's website for the book; see

Publisher's blurb:

This standard textbook of modern graph theory combines the authority of a classic with the engaging freshness of style that is the hallmark of active mathematics. It covers the core material of the subject with concise yet reliably complete proofs, while offering glimpses of more advanced methods in each field by one or two deeper results, again with proofs given in full detail. The book can be used as a reliable text for an introductory course, as a graduate text, and for self-study.

From the reviews:

"This outstanding book cannot be substituted with any other book on the present textbook market. It has every chance of becoming the standard textbook for graph theory." Acta Scientiarum Mathematiciarum

"Deep, clear, wonderful. This is a serious book about the heart of graph theory. It has depth and integrity." Persi Diaconis & Ron Graham, SIAM Review

"The book has received a very enthusiastic reception, which it amply deserves. A masterly elucidation of modern graph theory." Bulletin of the Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications

"Succeeds dramatically ... a hell of a good book." MAA Reviews

"A highlight of the book is what is by far the best account in print of the Seymour-Robertson theory of graph minors." Mathematika

"... like listening to someone explain mathematics." Bulletin of the AMS
