0 = In-person
Teaching modes (remote, hybrid, in-person) are subject to change at any point. Please pay close attention when registering. Depending on the timing of a teaching mode change, faculty also may be in contact with students.
Graph theory is a vibrant area of research with many applications to the social sciences, psychology, and economics. In this project-based tutorial, students will select among the presented topics and will develop research questions and undertake original research in the field. Student assessment is based on drafts of research project manuscript and presentations.
Grading: no pass/fail option,
no fifth course option
presentations and written project manuscript
MATH 355 or permission of the instructor
programming experience, students with interests in the intersection of combinatorics and graph theory
Writing Skills Quantative/Formal Reasoning
This course will require multiple revisions of a manuscript related to the research project at hand. The final result will be a 10-20 page research article and the course will be designed as a writing intensive course.
The course deals with mathematical research in graph theory and is a quantitative and formal reasoning course.
