In 1963 Oystein Ore wrote this classic volume, which was published in the New Mathematical Library Series. This elegant book has provided students and teachers with an excellent introduction to the field of graph theory for close to thirty years. Robin Wilson's revision adds strength to the book by updating the terminology and notation, bringing them in line with contemporary usage. Wilson has added new material on interval graphs, the traveling salesman problem, bracing frameworks, shortest route problems, and coloring maps on surfaces. Most of the diagrams in the book have been redrawn
Number theory and its history by Øystein Ore( Book )

This book, written by a prominent mathematician and Sterling Professor of Mathematics at Yale, differs from most books on number theory in two important ways: first, it presents the principal ideas and methods of number theory within a historical and cultural framework, making the subject more tangible and easily grasped. Second, the material requires substantially less mathematical background than many comparable texts. Technical complications and mathematical requirements have been kept to a minimum in order to make the book as accessible as possible to readers with limited mathematical knowledge. For the majority of the book, a basic knowledge of algebra will suffice. In developing the importance and meaning of number theory in the history of mathematics, Professor Ore documents the contributions of a host of history's greatest mathematicians: Diophantos, Euclid, Fibonacci, Euler, Fermat, Mersenne, Gauss, and many more, showing how these thinkers evolved the major outlines of number theory. Topics covered include counting and recording of numbers, the properties of numbers, prime numbers, the Aliquot parts, indeterminate problems, theory of linear indeterminate problems, Diophantine problems, congruences, analysis of congruences. Wilson's Theorem, Euler's theorem, theory of decimal expansions, the converse of Fermat's theorem, and the classical construction problems. Based on a course the author gave for a number of years at Yale, this book covers the essentials of number theory with a clarity and avoidance of abstruse mathematics that make it an ideal resource for undergraduates or for amateur mathematicians (who have historically contributed much to number theory). It has even been recommended for self-study by gifted high school students. -- from back cover
