From L. Euler to D. König
RAIRO - Operations Research - Recherche Opérationnelle, Volume 43 (2009) no. 3, pp. 247-251.

Starting from the famous Königsberg bridge problem which Euler described in 1736, we intend to show that some results obtained 180 years later by König are very close to Euler's discoveries.
