Date: Saturday, Mar 4, 2017

Time: 10 AM – Noon

Location: UTC 3.104 (On the UT campus)

Speaker: Dr. Dana Moshkovitz

Abstract: Minimum spanning trees: Suppose that you want to lay down cables so all the houses in a new neighborhood are connected to electricity. The cost of a cable is proportional to the length of the cable, and you want to minimize the total cost. This is an instance of a fundamental problem in computer science, called the minimum spanning tree problem. We'll learn about this problem and ways to solve it, about related problems, and, if time permits, about the advantage of randomization in finding minimum spanning trees.
