Each student is supposed to
- analyze real life problems
- express them as a graph theory problem
- solve the problem using graph theory methods
- give an interpretation of the theoretical results in the terms of the original problems
At the same time he should decide what are the limits of an ideal theoretical solution in contrast to the real situation.

Lectures

Individual consultations

Tutorials

Project work

The course covers both basic and advanced topics of Graph Theory, often overlapping with other branches of mathematics (algebra, combinatorics).
A mandatory part of the course is one or sometimes two projects focused on real life problems that are solved using methods of graph theory.

During the semester each student prepares one or two projects.
Topic of each project is chosen among topics presented in the lecture.
The sumbission date and all assignments are available on the instructor webpage or in the university electronic information system.
(Each student has to register for a topic.)
For a pass it is necessary to have at least one project graded for at least 10 points.

There are no other requirements.

Subject has no prerequisities.

Subject has no co-requisities.

During the semester each student prepares one or two projects. Topic of each project is chosen among topics presented in the lecture. Assignments are available on the instructor webpage or in the university electronic information system, for example:
1) planar graphs and their applications
2) graph colorings and their applications
For a pass it is necessary to have at least one project graded for at least 10 points.
