Combinatorics-The Graph Brain Project

Speaker: Craig Larson, Virginia Commonwealth University
Date and time: Tuesday, February 6, 1-2pm
Place: Rome 771
Title: The Graph Brain Project
Abstract: We discuss the use of modern computer tools and resources to systematically advance our shared mathematical goals. In this talk we will discuss the available tools in the context of a summer 2017 project to find bounds for the independence number of a graph.  The independence number is the cardinality of a maximum independent set in a graph. Two conjectured theorems will be discussed, together with a selection of three interesting conjectures.
