Relying on their study of clique detection, they described a class of graphs for which the adjacency matrix is the square of the adjacency matrix of a tree.

Harary made many unique contributions to graph theory as he explored more and more different fields of study and successfully attempted to relate them to graph theory.

The admission of powers of an adjacency matrix led Harary and Ross to note that a complete graph can be obtained from the square of an adjacency matrix of a tree. Harary’s classic book Graph Theory begins by providing the reader with much of the requisite knowledge of basic graphs and then dives right into proving the diversity of content that is held within graph theory.

Brooklyn College University of California at Berkeley. Ffrank was following this text that Harary began to build up a worldwide reputation for his work in graph theory.

Probably the simplest way to observe this theorem in action is to observe the case which Harary mentions in The Square of a Tree. Harary quickly began promoting inquiry based learning through his texts, apparent by his reference to the tradition of the Moore method.

He broadened the reach of this field to include physics, psychology, sociology, and even anthropology. Goldner—Harary graph Harary’s generalized tic-tac-toe.

Prior to his teaching career he became a research assistant in the Institute of Social Research at the University of Michigan. A particular trick he employed was to turn theorems into games – for instance, students would try to add red edges to a graph on six vertices in order to create a red triangle, while another group of students tried to add edges to create a blue triangle and each edge of the graph had to be tneory blue or red.

Because of the theorem on friends and strangersone team or the other would have to win.

Harary’s most famous classic book Graph Theory was published in and offered a practical introduction to the field of graph theory. Retrieved from ” https: Upon squaring of the adjacency matrix of the previously mentioned tree, we can observe that this theorem does in fact hold true. Some of the other mathematical fields that Harary directly relates to graph theory in his book begin to appear around chapter 13, these topics include linear algebraand abstract algebra.

Squaring the adjacency matrix of T should yield an adjacency matrix for nqrosa graph which is isomorphic to the graph G which we started with. In Harary’s first book Structural models: This page was last edited on 20 Septemberat Taken from the preface of Graph Theory, Harary notes Harary also played a curious role in the award-winning film Good Will Hunting.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Harary was particularly proud that he had given lectures in cities around the world beginning with every letter of the alphabet, even including “X” when he traveled to XantenGermany.

He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Brooklyn College in and respectively [2] and his Ph. The same year as his retirement Harary was made an honorary fellow of the National Academy of Sciences of India, he also served as an editor for about 20 different journals teory primarily on graph theory and combinatorial theory. Frank Harary March 11, — January 4, was an American mathematicianwho specialized in graph theory.

Fosterfrom University of California at Berkeley in Harary was theoty true scholar with a genuine love for graph theory which was an endless source of new discoveries, beauty, curiosity, surprises and joy for him till the very end of his life.

We can also observe that this pattern of setting up a tree yraph “one point joined with all harqry others” will always indeed yield the correct tree for all complete graphs. When the tree is squared, the result is the complete graph. We theor to illustrate He held this position until his death in Harary’s first publication, “Atomic Boolean-like rings with finite radical”, went through much effort to be put into the Duke Mathematical Journal in It was following his retirement that Harary was elected as an honorary lifetime member of the Calcutta Mathematical Society and of the South African Mathematical Society.
