Class Details

Algebraic combinatorics is a branch of mathematics at the intersection of combinatorics and algebra. On the one hand, we study combinatorial structures using algebraic techniques, while on the other we use combinatorial arguments and methods to solve problems in algebra. In this collaborative project-based course, students will select among the presented topics, develop research questions, and undertake original research in the field. Student assessment is based building positive and supportive collaborative working relationships with their peers, drafts of research project manuscript, and oral presentations.
