### DIMACS - Graduate Student Combinatorics Seminar

Title: Topological Graph Theory

Speaker: **Corrine Yap**, Rutgers University

Date: Wednesday, October 4, 2017 12:10pm

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

Abstract:

What happens when we take the graphs we know and love and stick them on the torus? What about the Mobius strip? Or the Klein bottle?? We'll talk about how to embed graphs on "nice" surfaces in a "nice" way and give generalizations to a few familiar theorems about planar graphs. There will be no topology knowledge required. If time permits, we'll also color some stuff!
