Beautifully written and elegantly presented, this book is based on 10
lectures given at the CBMS workshop on spectral graph theory in June
1994 at Fresno State University. Chung's well-written exposition can be
likened to a conversation with a good teacher - one who not only gives
you the facts, but tells you what is really going on, why it is worth
doing, and how it is related to familiar ideas in other areas. The
monograph is accessible to the nonexpert who is interested in reading
about this evolving area of mathematics.
