### Indigenous Math Camp

The Indigenous Math Camp is a new camp that will run this coming summer at Dalhousie's department of Mathematics and Statistics. The premise is to give indigenous Nova junior high students a real university experience mathematics and open up the doorway to careers in STEM. The campers will stay in Dalhousie residences. The campers are br two groups that change between the Mathematics sessions and the Coding sessions each day. The two teaching teams (one for Math and one for…

### Black Educators’ Association – Dalhousie Math Camp

The BEA/DAL Math Camp offers African-Nova Scotian junior high school youth, a math-based real university experience, to open doorways to STEM careers. The campers are broken into two groups that change between Mathematics sessions and Coding sessions. Each session has a black high school teacher paired with a university teacher as instructors. A puzzle-based approach is proposed for the Math sessions. In these sessions campers will explore topics like logic puzzles, counting based card tricks, binary numbers & error correcting…

This week-long day camp is an opportunity for students entering grades 5 or 6 in the Annapolis Valley to participate in fun and enriching science-based activities with Acadia faculty and students to develop their curiosity and enjoyment of mathematics, statistics, and computer science. It represents an important piece of a multi-year plan to develop the mathematics skills of young students in the Annapolis Valley by bringing young students into the Acadia University outreach program. This will begin the process of…

The Dalhousie Math Camp is an annual event, held for one week in early July. We will accept 20 participants into the program, 10 female and 10 male, that are entering eleventh or twelfth grade in the following school year. We reach out to schools across Nova Scotia and ask for nominations of two students that are enthusiastic and hard working. The students stay and have their meals at the dormitories at Dalhousie for a week and attend seminars in…

The goals of the summer school are two-fold. First, to introduce students to research level mathematics and second, to encourage more female and female-identifying students to pursue graduate school in the mathematical sciences. The research theme of the 2024 summer school will be Combinatorial Commutative Algebra, as described below. By introducing the advanced mathematics in a supportive and engaging environment, we aim to give students the tools and the support structure that will enable them to thrive in graduate school.

Objectives: The mathematical institutes in Canada have joined forces to offer annual summer schools geared toward women and underrepresented groups in mathematics and related sciences. The first school will be at Dalhousie University in Summer 2024. The goals of the summer school are two-fold. First, to introduce students to research level mathematics and second, to encourage more female and female-identifying students to pursue graduate school in the mathematical sciences. The research theme of the 2024 summer school will be Combinatorial Commutative Algebra,…

### Graph Searching in Canada Workshop 2024

The Graph Searching in Canada 2024 workshop will be held at Dalhousie University on August 7-9, 2024. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers studying graph searching problems and their variants, such as as Cops and Robbers, Localization, searching, firefighting, burning, and eternal domination. Our plenary speakers will be Dr. Andrea Burgess (University of New Brunswick - Saint John) and Dr. Kerry Ojakian (Bronx Community College - CUNY). In addition to the plenary talks, there will be…

### Atlantic Graph Theory Seminar

Title: How do we use graphs to transmit quantum information? Time: 3.30pm, Atlantic time, (1:30, CDT) Wednesday Sept. 18 Speaker: Hermie Monterde, University of Manitoba Abstract: In this talk, a graph $G$ represents a quantum spin network (a networking of interacting subatomic particles). The vertices and edges of $G$ represent the particles and their interactions in the network. Consider the complex unitary matrix $U(t)=\exp(itA)$, where $A$ is the adjacency matrix of $G$, $i^2=-1$ and $t$ is a real number. The propagation of quantum…

Recolouring Graphs: Decompositions, A Dichotomy Theorem and Frozen Colourings Speaker: Kathie Cameron, Wilfrid Laurier University A k-colouring of a graph G is an assignment of at most k colours to the vertices of a graph so that the ends of each edge of the graph get different colours. We consider the question: When it is possible to obtain any k-colouring from any other by changing the colour of one vertex at a time, while always having a k-colouring? This question is equivalent to asking whether the “reconfiguration…

### Atlantic Graph Theory Seminar

The Martin Invariant and Other Results on the Interlace Polynomials Josephine Reynes, University of Waterloo There are many well studied graph polynomials, but this talk will focus on the Martin polynomial and the interlace polynomial. Specifically, this talk will look at how these two polynomials are related and how results on the Martin polynomial can be extended to the interlace polynomial. The Martin invariant, a specific evaluation of the Martin polynomial, obeys the symmetries of the Feynman period. The Feynman…
