Graph Theory and Applications

This teaching unit will be held in class, i.e. face to face.

In this course, we first introduce some basic concepts and notions of graph theory. We then present a series of graph theoretical problems (vertex coloring, edge coloring, maximum matching, …) which have real world applications (in sports scheduling, timetabling, transmission problems, … ) and focus on how these problems may be solved. The students will also learn how to model other real world problems using the graph theoretical notions introduced.
