Through the project "Anillo en Redes," we seek the consolidation of a research group with a regional leadership role in discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science. We will concentrate our research efforts on a wide variety of topics, all with a common underlying theme: Networks.
It is a remarkable fact that the simple and abstract mathematical formalism of networks and the underlying concept of graphs should prove useful in modeling and understanding so many real-world phenomena. Examples are city traffic, email flow in the Internet, disease spread through a population and shipment of goods from warehouses to retailers, just to name a few. Interestingly, the systematic study of the networks is a recent discipline for the scientific world, and it is evolving very rapidly. Moreover, networks provide a framework for posing and studying problems that often have wider applicability than their originating context.
In this project we will develop mathematical and algorithmic tools that allow us to face different fundamental problems in networks and a better understanding of structures related with them. Of course, our immediate research objectives are more limited in scope and more technical in nature. Specifically, we would like to study the following subjects:
