Description

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Linear Algebraic Techniques in Combinatorics/Graph Theory " workshop from January 30 to February 4, 2011.




Linear Algebra and Matrix Theory are two branches of most structured areas of mathematics. Combinatorics on the other hand is an area of mathematics which borrows ideas and structures from other areas of mathematics to resolve many questions related to today's life style such as Internet Security, Communications, Statistical designs, etc. This workshop is to get to know the latest development and the smartest way of using the very well structured areas of Linear Algebra and Matrix Theory in the study of Combinatorics.




The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
