DIMACS - Graduate Student Combinatorics Seminar

Title: Fun with Signed Graphs

Speaker: Abigail Raz, Rutgers University

Date: Wednesday, February 11, 2015 12:10pm

Location: Graduate Student Lounge, 7th Floor, Hill Center, Rutgers University, Busch Campus, Piscataway, NJ


In this talk we look at signed graphsgraphs whose edges have weights of plus or minus oneand how to construct their exterior powers. We will discuss basic properties of these signed graphs- when are they balanced, anti-balanced, or unbalanced? Specifically, we will look at a complete characterization for when the exterior power of a graph is balanced.
