CMS Summer Meeting: Special Session on Graph Decompositions
June 5, 2020 - June 8, 2020
Decomposition of graphs, particularly decomposition into cycles, is a vibrant area of research in the intersection of graph theory and the theory of combinatorial designs. For almost two centuries, professional as well as amateur mathematicians have been intrigued by problems that are easy to state yet extremely difficult to solve. In the last couple of decades, we have witnessed an explosion of new results, including new techniques and solutions to many long-outstanding problems; however, many fundamental problems remain unsolved.
The session in Graph Decompositions at the CMS 75th Anniversary Summer Meeting will bring together leading and emerging researchers in the field to share their recent results, techniques, and applications.
This session is dedicated to Louise Duffield Cummings, a Canadian-born mathematician who contributed influential results in the study of triple systems. The year 2020 marks the 150th anniversary of her birth.
