Title: Graph Pebbling

Director(s): Cynthia J. Wyels, Mathematics Department

Email: wyels@clunet.edu

Dates of Program: July 5 - August 12, 2005

Summary: Graph pebbling will be the topic for the 2005 MAA-SUMMA REU at California Lutheran University. Students will conduct research on a problem they determine or chosen from among the following:

  1. Investigate the relationship between the girth of a graph and the graph’s pebbling number.
  2. Explore whether the Kneser graphs of diameter at least three are of Class 0, i.e. whether their pebbling numbers are equal to the sizes of their vertex sets.
  3. Determine optimal pebbling numbers for families of graphs.
