- Discrete mathematics
- Graph theory

Douglas B. West mainly investigates Combinatorics, Discrete mathematics, Graph, Vertex and Indifference graph. In the field of Discrete mathematics, his study on Graph coloring, Edge coloring and Greedy coloring overlaps with subjects such as Bisection. Douglas B. West has included themes like Clique-sum and Maximal independent set in his Graph coloring study.

In the subject of general Graph, his work in Domination analysis is often linked to If and only if, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Vertex study incorporates themes from Hypergraph, Complete graph and Regular graph. The Indifference graph study combines topics in areas such as Pathwidth and Interval graph.

- Introduction to Graph Theory (5768 citations)
- A Graph-Theoretic Game and its Application to the $k$-Server Problem (266 citations)
- Spanning trees with many leaves (162 citations)

His primary areas of investigation include Combinatorics, Discrete mathematics, Graph, Vertex and Vertex. His work is connected to Degree, Bipartite graph, Conjecture, Partially ordered set and Disjoint sets, as a part of Combinatorics. Many of his studies on Discrete mathematics apply to Graph theory as well.

His work on Domination analysis, Choice number and Connectivity as part of general Graph research is often related to Bounded function, thus linking different fields of science. His Vertex research includes themes of Complete graph, Hypercube, Ramsey's theorem, Positive weight and Chromatic scale. His research in Edge coloring tackles topics such as List coloring which are related to areas like Complete coloring, Fractional coloring and Brooks' theorem.

His primary scientific interests are in Combinatorics, Graph, Vertex, Discrete mathematics and Vertex. Combinatorics is represented through his Multiset, Ramsey's theorem, Disjoint sets, Multigraph and Hypercube research. His work on Bipartite graph as part of general Graph study is frequently linked to Bounded function, K-edge, Spectral radius and Vertical channel, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His Discrete mathematics study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Discharging method. His Vertex research incorporates themes from Strongly connected component and Random graph. His Forbidden graph characterization research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Indifference graph, Cograph, Symmetric graph and Graph product.
