Summer 2005 -- Summer 2010
This REU program is currently on break. We may re-run the program at a future date.
Over the six years (2005 -- 2010), the program carried out research projects
centered around the study of graphs, with three types of projects:
- the invention of new families of graphs and the study
of their combinatorial properties using tools from
algebraic topology and geometry;
- the study of algebraic and combinatorial
properties of groups using heat kernel techniques from physics;
- the study of groupoids, especially the ones associated with graphs or built from
To find some (though not all) of the results obtained
from the program (2008--2010), please visit:
