Colloquium 11/12: Dr. Alison Marr on Magic Directed Graphs
Next Tuesday (note the day change) at 3:30 in Math 357, Dr. Alison Marr from Southwestern University will be speaking about “Magic Directed Graphs.” This talk will be interesting for all levels of students. Abstract: Magic graphs are related to the classic problem of the magic square in which you want to put the numbers 1 to n^2 in an n by n grid such that each row, column, and diagonal adds to the same number. This talk will explore the most up-to-date research in the field of magic directed graphs. We’ll look at definitions and basic examples for a variety of different types of magic labelings. Very little math background is necessary to understand the basic ideas! Many open problems will be given. Flyer in PDF Form
