Course aims:

Our aims in this course are twofold. First, to discuss some of the major results of graph theory, and to provide an introduction to the language, methods and terminology of the subject
Second, to emphasize various approaches (algorithmic, probabilistic, etc.) that have proved fruitful in modern graph theory: these modes of thinking about the subject have also proved successful in areas of informatics.
