This is a self-contained advanced-level graph theory course, which explores some of the most important results in the field.
Graphs are mathematical structures which model relationships between objects. Graph theory is the branch of combinatorics concerned with their study, and has grown to become a very rich and diverse discipline in its own right. It has applications in almost every scientific field, from analysing the spread of epidemics, to modelling social networks. This is a self-contained advanced-level graph theory course, which explores some of the most important results in the field. It also seeks to build mathematical maturity by exposing students to open problems, and requiring them to write a mathematical report.
Students who have succeeded in this course will:Understand some of the most important results in key areas of graph theory.Read and understand advanced mathematical poofs.Construct original mathematical proofs of a high-level.Write mathematically (in the style of mathematical papers).Engage with mathematical literature.
Subject to approval of the Head of School.
