The Steiner challenge asks for a shortest community which spans a given set of issues. minimal spanning networks were well-studied whilst all connections are required to be among the given issues. the newness of the Steiner tree challenge is that new auxiliary issues may be brought among the unique issues in order that a spanning community of the entire issues may be shorter than differently attainable. those new issues are known as Steiner issues - finding them has proved not easy and learn has diverged alongside many alternative avenues. This quantity is dedicated to the assimilation of the wealthy box of exciting analyses and the consolidation of the fragments. a bit has been given to every of the 3 significant parts of curiosity that have emerged. the 1st issues the Euclidean Steiner challenge, traditionally the unique Steiner tree challenge proposed via Jarnik and Kossler in 1934. the second one bargains with the Steiner challenge in Networks, which used to be propounded independently through Hakimi and Levin and has loved the main prolific examine among the 3 components. The Rectilinear Steiner challenge, brought via Hanan in 1965, is mentioned within the 3rd half. also, a forth part has been integrated, with chapters discussing parts the place the physique of effects continues to be rising. The collaboration of 3 authors with various types and outlooks provides person insights inside a cohesive entire.
