Introduction to algebraic graph theory

Graph Theory Working Seminar
Wednesday, February 12, 2020 - 4:30pm for 1 hour (actually 50 minutes)
Skiles 005
James Anderson – Georgia Tech
Joshua Schroeder and Xingxing Yu
In this introductory talk, we explore the first 5 chapters of Biggs's Algebraic Graph Theory. We discuss the properties of the adjacency matrix  of graph G, as well as the relationship between the incidence matrix of G and the cycle space and cut space. We also include several other small results. This talk will be followed by later talks in the semester continuing from Biggs's book.
