    Graph Theory and Design Theory

    Mathematical models of relationships and networks date from the early part of the 18th Century, and received renewed attention as computers the Internet transformed the world in the second half of the 20th Century.  Research done in this field by faculty in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Dayton includes studying ways to decompose these relationships and use them as frameworks for mathematical “games” in ways that allow researchers to better understand their structure.

    Graph theory and design theory projects for undergraduates provide a wide array of easy to understand problems that can be studied using ideas and tools from a wide variety of fields within mathematics and computer science.  For more information about undergraduate research opportunities (include capstone experiences), contact Dr. Abueida, Dr. Busch or Dr. Higgins.
