Iain Moffatt with his new book

The Tutte Polynomial provides a way to encode a network algebraically in terms of a polynomial. It touches on nearly every area of combinatorics as well as many other fields, including statistical mechanics, coding theory, and DNA sequencing. It is one of the most studied graph polynomials.


Handbook of the Tutte Polynomial and Related Topics is the first handbook published on the Tutte Polynomial. It consists of thirty-four chapters written by experts in the field, which collectively offer a concise overview of the polynomial’s many properties and applications. Each chapter covers a different aspect of the Tutte polynomial and contains the central results and references for its topic.


The book is published by CRC press and prepared with Joanna Ellis-Monaghan from the University of Amsterdam.
