During the last decade there has been considerable research activity devoted to the study of systems which could be modeled as networks. Whereas the subject of such research has ranged from network flows, reliable networks, electrical network theory, etc., most of the books that have appeared on the subject tend to emphsize either integer programming and network flows , or graph theory and its applications in electrical engineering -. As the title of the book suggests the authors, who are prolific contributors in the field, have taken a different approach. They have attempted to develop the theory of networks by organizing the book around the classes of physical problems rather than the techniques used to solve them.
