This REU program is focused on 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
This will be the sixth year of the program. For information about programs
from previous five years, please visit:
