**A Course on the Web
Graph**

A new book

Published by the

as part of the Graduate Studies in Mathematics
Series,

and

as the first title in their AARMS Monograph Series.

**Audience**: Graduate
students, advanced undergraduates, pure and
applied mathematicians, physicists, biologists, social scientists, and engineers interested in the mathematics of
complex networks and in graph theory.

**Excerpts from reviews:**

*"The book gives an excellent introduction to various aspects of the Web graph and the mathematical
techniques that can be applied to their exploration. I have recommended the book to my graduate students as an introduction
to research on graph models, and found that the students appreciate its expository style. The book contains extensive problem sets, making it a
good teaching tool. The book is largely self-contained, and lends itself well for a topics course in discrete mathematics. To my knowledge, this book is the
best introduction for mathematics students to the exciting research that started with the study of the Web graph."*
-Jeannette Janssen, for *Canadian Mathematical Society Notes*.

*"Overall the text is well-structured and pleasant to read for mathematically oriented readers and
very fit to be taken as a text book also for a less mathematical audience. I personally eagerly await for the opportunity to give
a course based on Bonato's book at the postgraduate level."* -Elisa Schaeffer, for *SIGACT NEWS Book Column*.

*"Bonato's book provides an introduction to the ongoing mathematically rigorous
research on the properties of models for the web graph. It is well-suited for teaching a class on the matter to graduate students or advanced undergraduates."* -Abraham Flaxman, for *MathSciNet
*.

*"This book will be a valuable source for mathematicians trying to get some idea of the developments relating to web graphs and similar networks." *
-David B. Penman, for *Zentralblatt MATH*

*"The text is largely self-contained and would be suitable for self-study. This is a solid effort, well organized and clearly written."* -Bill Satzer, for *MAA Reviews*

*"The book is a readable and up-to-date exposition of the mathematical theory of web graphs and related real-world self-organizing
networks."* *Newsletter of the European Mathematical Society*
