Description

MA260 Graphs in Culture immerses students in the use of graphs to model and understand complex relationships.  Intricate art from Africa and India, routes for delivery companies (like Fed Ex), the social networks (like Facebook and Twitter), family genealogies, settlement patterns in archaeological sites (like Cahokia), sports tournaments (like NCAA basketball), and fault-tolerant computer systems all can be studied using graphs.  In this course students will learn the fundamentals of applied graph theory.  Teams of students will construct graph-theoretic models in a domain of their own choosing and then use their models to discover hidden properties embedded in that domain. The course concludes with the teams presenting their models and discoveries.
