Paul Glaze UConn Wednesday Talk Comment Form Title of talk: Spanning Trees Name of speaker: Hugo Panzo Speaker’s institution: UCONN Date of Talk: 10/FEB/2016 The talk was good. Spanning trees seemed a little easyer to understand the P-atic numbers. When Panzo was talking about application it seemed like I could understand what he was talking about. Talk Summary: A spanning tree of graph is a path through all vertices of the graph without any cycles. The number of spanning trees of a graph is closely linked to properties of the graph when it is viewed as an electrical network. After seeing some examples of spanning trees and their relation to other parts of mathematics besides graph theory, we will work out recurrence relations for the number of spanning trees in some families of graphs. Spanning trees have

Unformatted text preview: applications in many areas of studies What did you find most interesting about the talk? The most interesting part was his first example. Using the spaning trees to calculate ex-pected resistance between to verteices. This may have applications in electrical engineering. Would this make a good topic for your final paper? Detail all the pros and cons to using this topic. This may make a good topic for a paper. Spanning trees may have application in my filed of study. That dose make the topic a bit more interesting. The speaker Panzo did say that there are many applications. I know next to nothing about spaning trees. This may make it difficut to find good resorces. I have never come accross them in my studies, and electrical engineering has a good deal of mathmatics. 1...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
