Algebraic Graph Theory
Month: June 2013
Date: June 17--28
Name: Algebraic Graph Theory
Location: University of Wyoming, Laramie, Wyoming.
The purpose of this summer program is to introduce participants to topics in algebraic graph theory, including spectral graph theory, association schemes, and graph polynomials, with applications to quantum walks, error correcting codes, designs, the Potts model, and DNA self-assembly. Each of the three main speakers will give a total of ten lectures. No specialized prior knowledge will be assumed. In the afternoons there will be contributed talks by participants on their research.
Rocky Mountain Mathematics Consortium.
Additional funding is pending.
To prepare participants to pursue open problems in the subject, and build ties between young researchers and graduate students.
Chris Godsil (University of Waterloo); William J. Martin (Worcester Polytechnic Institute); Joanna Ellis-Monaghan (St. Michael's College).
For applications/abstracts of talks: April 5, 2013.
