Seminar: Lectures on Advanced Graph Theory

Brief description

The Seminar will cover topics on Graph Theory including:

  • Graph coloring
  • Minors and Treewidth
  • Embeddings on the plane and other surfaces
  • Spectral Graph Theory

The aim of this seminar is to give an introduction to the aforementioned topics and highlight possible research directions in these different fields. Each student will give a blackboard lecture introducing the respective research area and known results, concluding with open problems.

All presentations have to be given in English. There will be weekly meetings.

Detailed information will be given at the kick-off meeting (date t.b.a.).
