A special issue of the journal Discrete Applied Mathematics will be
published on the occasion of the 65th birthday of Prof. Andreas
Brandstädt. The scope of the issue will include all aspects of
theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics related to the
research areas in which Andreas Brandstädt has been involved. These
include graph and hypergraph theory, graph algorithms, and
combinatorics. Research on the structural and algorithmic properties of
special graph classes as well as research related to the work of Andreas
Brandstädt will be highly appreciated.

List of topics

Examples of such areas include

- Graph theory
- Graph classes
- Intersection graphs
- Perfect graphs
- Decompositions of graphs
- Hypergraphs
- Graph algorithms
- NP-hard graph problems in special graph classes


Authors are invited to submit original papers relevant to the scope of
the special issue. All submissions should be uploaded via Elsevier's
Online Manuscript Submission, Review and Tracking System for Discrete
Applied Mathematics ( ) where you
can find detailed information and instructions. Please note that once
you select 'Submit a Manuscript', you must choose "Special Issue: To A.
Brandstädt" from the drop-down list when prompted for 'Choose Article
Type'. All papers will be refereed, and acceptance will follow the
standards of Discrete Applied Mathematics.
