Ch 13: Paths & Circuits

About This Chapter

This chapter provides a quick, effective review of mathematical paths and circuits to help you study for an exam or make up info you missed in class. These video lessons cover the various theories and theorists related to circuits, such as Euler's paths and Hamilton circuits.

Paths & Circuits - Chapter Summary

In this chapter, you can explore different theories of circuits and paths. You will start with the earliest theories by Euler that relating to paths and circuits. Move from these theories to the mathematical proofs he used to model them with. Next you can explore the contributions of William Rowan Hamilton and different methods to find the most efficient path of a circuit. When you have completed this chapter, you should be able to:

  • Identify the contributions made by Euler
  • Explain how Euler circuits and paths can be modeled mathematically
  • Discuss the findings of William Rowan Hamilton
  • Assess weighted and complete graphs using Hamilton circuits
  • Identify different methods for finding the most efficient path for a circuit

All of our lessons were created by professional instructors and include an illustrated video. Video tags, available in your Timeline, allow you to quickly move between lessons and seek individual points within a lesson, making it easy to review confusing points. The Dashboard on your account page allows you to study whenever you find the time, using your phone, tablet or computer.
