WELCOME TO KNOWPIA

**Ping Zhang** is a mathematician specializing in graph theory. She is a professor of mathematics at Western Michigan University and the author of multiple textbooks on graph theory and mathematical proof.^{[1]}

Zhang earned a master's degree in 1989 from the University of Jordan, working there on ring theory with Hasan Al-Ezeh.^{[1]}
She completed her Ph.D. in 1995 at Michigan State University. Her dissertation, in algebraic combinatorics, was *Subposets of Boolean Algebras*, and was supervised by Bruce Sagan.^{[1]}^{[2]}

After a short-term position at the University of Texas at El Paso, she joined the Western Michigan faculty in 1996.^{[1]}

Zhang is the author of:

*Mathematical Proofs: A Transition to Advanced Mathematics*(with Gary Chartrand and A. D. Polimeni, Addison-Wesley, 2002; 2nd ed., 2007; 3rd ed., 2012)*Introduction to Graph Theory*(with Gary Chartrand, McGraw-Hill, 2004; Chinese ed., 2006); revised as*A First Course in Graph Theory*(Dover, 2012)^{[3]}*Chromatic Graph Theory*(with Gary Chartrand, CRC Press, 2008)^{[4]}*Graphs & Digraphs*(by Gary Chartrand and Linda Lesniak, with Zhang added as a co-author on the 5th ed., CRC Press, 2010)^{[5]}*Discrete Mathematics*(with Gary Chartrand, Waveland Press, 2011)*Covering Walks in Graphs*(with Futaba Fujie, Springer, 2014)*Color-Induced Graph Colorings*(Springer, 2015)^{[6]}*The Fascinating World of Graph Theory*(with Arthur T. Benjamin and Gary Chartrand, Princeton University Press, 2015)^{[7]}*A Kaleidoscopic View of Graph Colorings*(Springer, 2016)^{[8]}*How to Label a Graph*(with Gary Chartrand and Cooroo Egan, Springer, 2019) MR3932147^{[9]}*Irregularity in Graphs*(with Akbar Ali and Gary Chartrand, Springer, 2021) MR4292275

She is also the co-editor of:
