Dalhousie University Graphs and Games Group

 Dalhousie university graphs and games group is a research group with interest fields: Graph Theory, Combinatorics (Hypergraph Theory, Matroids, Simplicial Complexes, Partial Orders) and Combinatorial Games and associated Algorithms and Applications. Techniques applied are from a variety of mathematical fields, including linear and commutative algebra, matrix theory, algebraic topology, analysis and probability. Current active areas of research include: analysis of large scale information networks (e.g. web graph); chromatic and independence polynomials; combinatorial games; combinatorial optimization; frequency planning in cellular networks; independence parameters and coverings of products of graphs; list colourings; network reliability; partial orders; vertex-to-vertex (Searching and Cops & Robber) pursuit games; well covered graphs; and applications of graph theory to music.
