Title: Arborescences of regular covering graphs
Abstract:
Spanning trees are fundamental objects of
study in graph theory; covering spaces are
fundamental objects of study in topology.
The goal of this talk is to explore the
interaction between these two conceptsin
particular, if you know the arborescences (directed
spanning trees) of a graph,
how easily can you figure out what the arborescences
of the covering graph look like? In this
talk, we will go over what arborescences and covering
graphs are and mention why we care
about these objects.
