Prerequisites/Notes: MATH 230 and MATH 250; or MATH 300

Catalog Description : A study of interconnections between abstract algebra (especially finite group theory) and combinatorics (especially graph theory). Topics will include classical results (such as the matrix-tree theorem), as well as recent subjects and advances (such as the abelian sandpile model and the Riemann-Roch theorem for graphs).

Topic for Fall 2021: Computational Algebraic Geometry
This course gives an introduction to computational algebraic geometry. Often, we study a geometric space by studying the functions on that space, and in this course we see the interplay between the two. Some highlights include the Hilbert Basis Theorem, Elimination Theory, and the Nullstellensatz. We will see applications in both robotics and the invariant theory of finite groups.
