**Publisher**: Kapa & Omega 2010**ISBN/ASIN**: 1599731347**ISBN-13**: 9781599731346**Number of pages**: 503

**Description**:

This book contains the elementary materials in map theory, including embeddings of a graph, abstract maps, duality, orientable and non-orientable maps, isomorphisms of maps and the enumeration of rooted or unrooted maps, particularly, the joint tree representation of an embedding of a graph on two dimensional manifolds, which enables one to make the complication much simpler on map enumeration.
