No. 473883-H) HRDF : 0159 GROUP: MYR 850.00 per participant (Minimum 3 participants from the same company / organisation) HRDF Claimable* *Subject to HRDF Approval STUDENT: MYR 450.00 per participant (Proof of I.D. is compulsory) (No Group Discount available) INTRODUCTION Graph algorithms play an important role in communication networks, data organization, computational devices, flow of computation, social networks etc. Graphs, especially trees and binary trees, are used in the representation of data structures. Further graph theory finds applications in economics, logistics, cybernetics, artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, reliability theory, fault diagnosis in computers, switching and coding theory, combinatorial operations research and so on. Another major research area in graph theory is the study of domination (more than 65 models have been reported), with interesting applications in various areas. This course is a pre-workshop event of "International Workshop on Graph Algorithms - IWGA2015". You are also welcome to participate in IWGA2015 (13th May 2015). Please visit http://event.cs.usm.my/IWGA2015/. COURSE METHODOLOGY The presenters would begin with certain real life problems and puzzles to motivate graph notions with intuitive examples. Then they would concentrate on transforming real life problems to graph theoretic problems. Methods and algorithms on graphs will be discussed taking the participants to the frontiers of various topics, including algorithmic aspects. The presenters would strive to keep the delivery simple, so that anyone interested can follow this course.
