Math Encounters: "Parties, Doughnuts, and Coloring: From Königsberg to Cutting Edge Research" with Maria Chudnovsky (7:00 pm)

Leonhard Euler’s late 1700s paper on the Seven Bridges of Königsberg launched a new field in mathematics, graph theory, that focuses on representing information about connections between pairs of objects.  Graphs are widely used today as a modeling tool in engineering, the social sciences, and many other fields.  Join Princeton University Professor Maria Chudnovsky on a journey that begins with some simple problems in graph theory and leads to an exploration of some of the most active fields in modern mathematical research.
