Graph Theory

Graph Theory has origins both in recreational mathematics problems (i.e., puzzles and games) and as a tool to solve practical problems in many areas of society. Topics covered will include trees and distance, connectivity and paths, network flow, graph coloring, directed graphs, and tournaments. In addition, students will gain a sense of what it means to do research in graph theory.
