Most widely held works by Béla Bollobás
Modern graph theory by Béla Bollobás( Book )

31 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an in-depth account of graph theory; it reflects the current state of the subject and emphasizes connections with other branches of pure mathematics. The volume grew out of the author's earlier book, Graph Theory - An Introductory Course, but its length is well over twice that of its predecessor, allowing it to reveal many new developments in the subject. Recognizing that graph theory is one of several courses competing for the attention of a student, the book contains extensive descriptive passages designed to convey the flavor of the subject and to arouse interest."--Jacket
Random graphs by Béla Bollobás( Book )

7 editions published between 1985 and 2004 in English and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a new edition of the now classic text. The already extensive treatment given in the first edition has been heavily revised by the author. The addition of two new sections, numerous new results and 150 references means that this represents an up to date and comprehensive account of random graph theory. The theory (founded by Erdös and Re;nyi in the late fifties) aims to estimate the number of graphs of a given degree that exhibit certain properties. It not only has numerous combinatorial applications, but also serves as a model for the probabilistic treatment of more complicated random structures. This book, written by an acknowledged expert in the field, can be used by mathematicians, computer scientists and electrical engineers, as well as people working in biomathematics. It is self-contained, and with numerous exercises in each chapter, is ideal for advanced courses or self study."--Book cover

Linear analysis : an introductory course by Béla Bollobás( Book )

28 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This introduction to functional analysis is intended for advanced undergraduate students, typically final year, who have some background in real analysis. The author's aim is not to cover the standard material in a standard way, but to present results of applications in contemporary mathematics and to show the relevance of functional analysis to other areas. Unusual topics covered include geometry of finite-dimensional spaces, invariant subspace, fixed-point theorem, and the Bishop-Phelps theorem. An outstanding set of exercises run from the elementary to the challenging
Extremal graph theory by Béla Bollobás( Book )

24 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ever-expanding field of extremal graph theory encompasses a diverse array of problem-solving methods, including applications to economics, computer science, and optimization theory. This volume, based on a series of lectures delivered to graduate students at the University of Cambridge, presents a concise yet comprehensive treatment of extremal graph theory. Unlike most graph theory treatises, this text features complete proofs for almost all of its results. Further insights into theory are provided by the numerous exercises of varying degrees of difficulty that accompany each chapter. Although geared toward mathematicians and research students, much of Extremal Graph Theory is accessible even to undergraduate students of mathematics. Pure mathematicians will find this text a valuable resource in terms of its unusually large collection of results and proofs, and professionals in other fields with an interest in the applications of graph theory will also appreciate its precision and scope
Combinatorics : set systems, hypergraphs, families of vectors, and combinatorial probability by Béla Bollobás( Book )

26 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Combinatorics is a book whose main theme is the study of subsets of a finite set. It gives a thorough grounding in the theories of set systems and hypergraphs, while providing an introduction to matroids, designs, combinatorial probability and Ramsey theory for infinite sets. The gems of the theory are emphasized: beautiful results with elegant proofs. The book developed from a course at Louisiana State University and combines a careful presentation with the informal style of those lectures. It should be an ideal text for senior undergraduates and beginning graduates."--Publisher's description
The art of mathematics : coffee time in Memphis by Béla Bollobás( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can a Christian escape from a lion? How quickly can a rumour spread? Can you fool an airline into accepting oversize baggage? Recreational mathematics is full of frivolous questions where the mathematician's art can be brought to bear. But play often has a purpose. In mathematics, it can sharpen skills, provide amusement, or simply surprise, and books of problems have been the stock-in-trade of mathematicians for centuries. This collection is designed to be sipped from, rather than consumed in one sitting. The questions range in difficulty: the most challenging offer a glimpse of deep results that engage mathematicians today; even the easiest prompt readers to think about mathematics. All come with solutions, many with hints, and most with illustrations. Whether you are an expert, or a beginner or an amateur mathematician, this book will delight for a lifetime

Surveys in combinatorics : proceedings of the 7th British Combinatorial Conference by Béla Bollobás( Book )

26 editions published between 1974 and 1983 in 3 languages and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combinatorics is an active field of mathematical study and the British Combinatorial Conference, held biennially, aims to survey the most important developments by inviting distinguished mathematicians to lecture at the meeting. The contributions of the principal lecturers at the Seventh Conference, held in Cambridge, are published here and the topics reflect the breadth of the subject. Each author has written a broadly conceived survey, not limited to his own work, but intended for wide readership. Important aspects of the subject are emphasized so that non-specialists will find them understandable. Topics covered include graph theory, matroids, combinatorial set theory, projective geometry and combinatorial group theory. All those researching into any aspect of Combinatorics and its applications will find much in these articles of use and interest

Graph theory and combinatorics, 1988 : proceedings of the Cambridge Combinatorial Conference in honour of Paul Erdős by Cambridge Combinatorial Conference( Book )

19 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combinatorics has not been an established branch of mathematics for very long: the last quarter of a century has seen an explosive growth in the subject. This growth has been largely due to the doyen of combinatorialists, Paul Erd & odblac;s, whose penetrating insight and insatiable curiosity has provided a huge stimulus for workers in the field. There is hardly any branch of combinatorics that has not been greatly enriched by his ideas. This volume is dedicated to Paul Erd & odblac;s on the occasion of his seventy-fifth birthday

Handbook of large-scale random networks by Béla Bollobás( Book )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook describes advances in large scale network studies that have taken place in the past 5 years since the publication of the Handbook of Graphs and Networks in 2003. It covers all aspects of large-scale networks, including mathematical foundations and rigorous results of random graph theory, modeling and computational aspects of large-scale networks, as well as areas in physics, biology, neuroscience, sociology and technical areas. Applications range from microscopic to mesoscopic and macroscopic models. The book is based on the material of the NSF workshop on Large-scale Random Grap
