Description: This graduate level text is distinguished both by the range of
topics and the novelty of the material it treats–more than half of
the material in it has previously only appeared in research papers.
The first half of this book introduces the characteristic and
matchings polynomials of a graph. It is instructive to consider
these polynomials together because they have a number of properties
in common. The matchings polynomial has links with a number of
problems in combinatorial enumeration, particularly some of the
current work on the combinatorics of orthogonal polynomials. This
connection is discussed at some length, and is also in part the… more…
