http://www.hamilton.edu/news/boutin-gives-research-talk
http://www.hamilton.edu/news/boutin-gives-research-talkDebra Boutin, professor of mathematics, gave a research presentation "Parameters for Graph Symmetries" at the Center for Communication Research, in La Jolla, Calif. In this talk, Boutin surveyed known and new results on ways of measuring network symmetries. In this survey she not only introduced the audience to various parameters used to quantify symmetries, but showed some of the surprisingly strong connections between them.Mon, 22 Feb 2016 14:00:00 ESTBoutin Delivers Research Talk
