Introductory Map Theory by Yanpei Liu
English | | ISBN: 1599731347 | 503 Pages | PDF | 2 MB
As an introductory work, this book contains the elementary materials in map theory, including
embeddings of a graph, abstract maps, duality, orientable and non-orientable maps, isomorphisms of maps and the enumeration of rooted or unrooted maps, particularly, the joint tree representation of an embedding of a graph on two dimensional manifolds, which enables one to make the complication much simpler on map enumeration. All of these are valuable for researchers and students in combinatorics, graphs and low dimensional topology.
