3-Colorable Graphs and Groebner Bases
Speaker: Anthony Sulak
Abstract: Coloring started when mathematicians in the nineteenth century tried coloring maps with the least amount of colors. Ever since then coloring has evolved from pure mathematical joy to real world applications. To make coloring the most efficient, algorithms had to be developed. Groebner bases is a computational tool that has been growing in popularity since Buchberger introduced his algorithm to compute Groebner bases. We will use Macaulay2 to compute Groebner bases. We will use those Groebner bases to find out if a graph G is 3-colorable or not and how to color G if it is.
