complete-graphPlease join us between 2-3:30pm in room 2.305 of the ECSS building on the campus of UTD for this exciting talk.  Austin Marstaller, a mathematics major at UTD, will present the topic of Graph Theory.  A graph consists of some points called vertices connected together by some lines called edges. Many interesting questions arise in graph coloring problems in which the edges and/or vertices are colored following some restrictions. In this talk, I will introduce graph theory and explore some interesting graph coloring problems such as representing Sudoku as a colored graph.
