HW 3: Create slide(s) for your 1 minute presentation on a graph theory application.
Make sure your
slide(s) include Use large font (best minimum = 24 point, 18 OK) Figures are helpful. INCLUDE YOUR NAME and affiliation. HW 5 (due Friday). Does thm 2.4 hold for all graphs or should the definition of κ(G) be modified for a special case. How does this special case affect the proof of κ(G) ≤ λ(G)? I.e., can you find a case for which the proof of κ(G) ≤ λ(G) needs modification? Check the assumptions in the proof (this should help you find the special case). Can you prove that κ(G) ≤ λ(G)? Explore. |
