Course Description
The theory of graphs is a beautiful area of mathematics, being easily approachable and highly applicable at the same time. Its growing importance is marked by numerous applications both within and outside mathematics: graphs appear naturally in certain areas of topology and algebra, but they are also a fundamental model in computer science, chemistry, biology, physics, linguistics and sociology. At the same time, the nice structural properties of graphs are worth exploring for their own sake.
This introductory course establishes the fundamental concepts of graph theory and shows several interesting results in various topics.
The course is divided into two parts. The first seven weeks treat the most basic notions and results, while the remaining seven weeks are devoted to somewhat more advanced topics. Students can either take the first half as a course for 5 credits, or the whole course for 10 credits.
