# Graph Colorings

Share this page *Edited by *
*Marek Kubale*

Graph coloring is one of the oldest and best-known problems
of graph theory. As people grew accustomed to applying the tools of
graph theory to the solutions of real-world technological and
organizational problems, new chromatic models emerged as a natural way
of tackling many practical situations. Statistics show that graph
coloring is one of the central issues in the collection of several
hundred classical combinatorial problems.

This book is devoted to problems in graph coloring, which can be
viewed as one area of discrete optimization. Chapters are dedicated to
various models and are largely independent of one another. In each
chapter, the author highlights algorithmic aspects of the presented
models, i.e., the construction of polynomial-time algorithms for graph
coloring.

This is an expanded and updated translation of the prizewinning book
originally published in Polish,
