Today's episode of BaseCS dives into the origins and basics of graph theory!
We’ll learn a little bit about Leonard Euler, a mathematician who attempted to solve the seven bridge problem. From there, we’ll jump right into the building blocks of graph theory, and discover how we can identify a graph by its different kinds of edges. We’ll investigate the different ways to classify a graph, from the degrees of its nodes, to the different kinds of paths and cycles that we can find within it.
