The Genius of Genus: Extending Planarity to Other Surfaces by Dalton Yu '22, Mathematics Colloquium

The Genius of Genus: Extending Planarity to Other Surfaces by Dalton Yu ’22, Mathematics Colloquium, Monday, November 29, 1 – 1:45 pm, North Science Building 113, Wachenheim

Abstract:  A graph is planar if it can be embedded in the plane; that is, it can be drawn on the  plane in a way such that no edges cross each other.  Genus extends on the concept of planarity by informing whether a graph that is non-planar can be embedded in other surfaces, such as a torus.  This talk will explore the major results relating to the concept of genus, in addition to examples of how to find the genus of a graph and applications of genus to non-orientable surfaces.
