Please join us for the Student Discrete Math Seminar. Although we don't have pizza, the talks are always interesting. Talk to the organizers if you have any questions or would like to speak at the seminar.
The most commonly asked question, especially for new graduate students, is: "I would like to speak, but I don't know what to talk about! What can I give a talk on?" Below we have some suggestions. Disclaimers: This list does not in any way attempt to cover all of Discrete Mathematics, but instead focuses on research areas that are more related to UC Davis specialties. In fact, the list does not even exhaust all of the topics that UC Davis does specialize in, but only what we happened to think of at the time. You are encouraged to seek out other topics and papers. Although there has been an attempt to organize and categorize, many papers and books belong in several categories, so take it all with several grains of salt.
The list is a work in progress - check back often for updates.
The following is an old listing of topics. We'll leave it up until we finish the new, more organized list.
Further suggestions are welcome!
