### Unit 8: Graphs and Trees

Graphs serve innumerable functions: they can represent communications systems, chart knowledge, and even solve problems. In this unit, we will acquaint ourselves with special kinds of mathematical graphs while discussing graph concepts from degree and vertex to isomorphism. We will then turn to trees, which comprise a special category of graphs, as they serve special purposes and have different structures. We will conclude with a study of tree and graph properties. Trees and graphs have application to artificial intelligence, scheduling problems, and transportation systems.
