# U. S. R. Murty

**Uppaluri Siva Ramachandra Murty**,^{[1]}^{[2]} or **U. S. R. Murty** (as he prefers to write his name), is a Professor Emeritus of the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization, University of Waterloo.^{[3]}^{[4]}

U. S. R. Murty received his Ph.D. in 1967 from the Indian Statistical Institute, Calcutta, with a thesis on extremal graph theory;^{[5]} his advisor was C. R. Rao.^{[6]} Murty is well known for his work in matroid theory and graph theory, and mainly for being a co-author with J. A. Bondy of a textbook on graph theory. Murty has served as a managing editor and co-editor-in-chief of the Journal of Combinatorial Theory, Series B.^{[7]}
