The main objective is to introduce the students in the graph theoretical concepts and using these concepts in the problem modelling. The second one is the presentation and programming of the main graph threoretical algorithms.

1. Introductory notions (grahs, directed graphs, subgrahs, paths, cycles, circuits, conectivity)
2. Paths problems: shortest path problem (algorithms: Moore-Dijkstra, Bellman-Kalaba, Ford, Floyd-Hu, Dantzig, Floyd-Hu-Warshall), Critical Path Method, Eulerian path, Hamiltonisan path.
3. Fundamental numbers in graph theory (internal stability number, external stability number, algorithms, cromatic number, cyclomatic number)
4. Tress and forests (Kruskal's and Prim's algorithms)
5. Planarity in graphs
6. Flows in networks (algorithm of Ford-Fulkerson, extensions).
7. Matching problems
8. Extremal problems (theorems of Ramsey and Turán)
9. Counting and enumerating problems
