Associate Professor of Mathematics Debra Boutin gave invited talks at Hobart-William Smith College and at Skimore College over break. In her talk "Graphs and Symmetry" Boutin introduced graphs and their symmetries with the goal of helping the audience to develop intuition about the subject. She then showed some of the questions and results that have arisen in this area in recent years. Boutin's talk at Skidmore College was part of their annual Pi Mu Epsilon ceremony to induct new members. Pi Mu Epsilon is the national mathematics honor society.
