A Study of Arc-Strong Connectivity of Digraphs

We study the extremal and structural properties of graphs and digraphs closely related to subgraph and subdigraphs connectivity. We obtained a best possible bound for the size of strict digraphs that do not have a

Alumnus Gift


Two-time West Virginia University graduate Mark Roth recently demonstrated how alumni of multiple colleges can blend their entire academic experience through their philanthropic goals.

Taking a “one WVU” approach to his philanthropy, Roth sought to give back to both of

Induction for "4-connected" Matroids and Graphs

A matroid M is a pair (E,I) where E is a finite set, called the ground set of M, and I is a non-empty collection of subsets of E, called independent sets of M, such that (1) a subset of an independent set is independent;

Vizing's conjectures and related problems

In 1965, Vizing proposed three conjectures about edge chromatic critical graphs which are Vizing’s Planar Graph Conjecture, Vizing’s 2-Factor Conjecture and the conjecture about the size of edge chromatic critical graphs. In

Finiteness Conditions in Algebra

Mathematical objects that satisfy finiteness conditions are frequently easier to work with than arbitrary objects.  For instance, finite dimensional vector spaces are nicer in many ways than infinite dimensional ones. In this talk, I
