252-4202-00L | Seminar in Theoretical Computer Science | 2 credits | 2S | E. Welzl, B. Gärtner, M. Ghaffari, M. Hoffmann, J. Lengler, A. Steger, D. Steurer, B. Sudakov | |

Abstract | Presentation of recent publications in theoretical computer science, including results by diploma, masters and doctoral candidates. | ||||

Objective | To get an overview of current research in the areas covered by the involved research groups. To present results from the literature. | ||||

Prerequisites / Notice | This seminar takes place as part of the joint research seminar of several theory groups. Intended participation is for students with excellent performance only. Formal restriction is: prior successful participation in a master level seminar in theoretical computer science. | ||||

401-3052-05L | Graph Theory | 5 credits | 2V + 1U | B. Sudakov | |

Abstract | Basic notions, trees, spanning trees, Caley's formula, vertex and edge connectivity, 2-connectivity, Mader's theorem, Menger's theorem, Eulerian graphs, Hamilton cycles, Dirac's theorem, matchings, theorems of Hall, König and Tutte, planar graphs, Euler's formula, basic non-planar graphs, graph colorings, greedy colorings, Brooks' theorem, 5-colorings of planar graphs | ||||

Objective | The students will get an overview over the most fundamental questions concerning graph theory. We expect them to understand the proof techniques and to use them autonomously on related problems. | ||||

Lecture notes | Lecture will be only at the blackboard. | ||||

Literature | West, D.: "Introduction to Graph Theory" Diestel, R.: "Graph Theory" Further literature links will be provided in the lecture. | ||||

Prerequisites / Notice | Students are expected to have a mathematical background and should be able to write rigorous proofs. NOTICE: This course unit was previously offered as 252-1408-00L Graphs and Algorithms. | ||||
