Associate Professor of Mathematics Debra Boutin gave an invited talk in a special session on Graph Theory at the recent Eastern Sectional Meeting of the American Math Society at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. In her talk, "The Cost of 2-Distinguishing," Boutin described a set of vertices that can be used to remove all symmetries from a network, and she presented new results on how surprisingly small these sets of vertices can be in some well-known network families.
