MATH 573. Graph Theory.

Comments From Graduate Director: 
Graph Theory is one of the areas represented in Discrete Mathematics, and has grown over the last thirty years to become an important area in both pure and applied mathematics (e.g. computer science, statistics, and operations research). We regularly offer doctoral-level courses in graph theory, for which this course would be prerequisite and Ph.D. students can make a minor area out of Math 573 and Math 773 or some other 700-level discrete math course. In the spring Math 573 follows with Math 571 Combinatorics, and taking both courses will provide a good background in discrete mathematics. Both courses are offered annually.
