MATH 393
Research Topics in Combinatorics Spring 2023
Division III Writing Skills Quantative/Formal Reasoning

Class Details

Combinatorics provides techniques and tools to enumerate, examine, and investigate the existence of discrete mathematical structures with certain properties. There are numerous areas of applications including algebra, discrete geometry, and number theory. In this project-based research course students will work in small groups to learn combinatorial techniques and tools in order to develop research questions and begin tackling unsolved problems in combinatorics.

WS Notes: The main goal of this course is to undertake original research in combinatorics, as such student assessment is based on developing positive collaboration skills, and improving technical written and oral skills in mathematics through manuscript draft submissions and in-class presentations. Students will provide multiple drafts of their manuscript and in right of this the course will be writing intensive.
QFR Notes: The main goal of this course is to undertake original research in the math field of mathematics. See above for more details.
