Applications of Vertex Coloring Problems for Graphs. Applications of Graph Theory in Model Construction. Modules and Monographs in Undergraduate Mathematics and Its Applications Project. UMAP Unit 442.
One of the great strengths of mathematics is viewed as the fact that apparently diverse real-world questions translate into that same mathematical question. It is felt that studying a mathematical problem can often bring about a tool of surprisingly diverse usability. The module is geared to help users know how to use graph theory to model simple problems, and to support elementary understanding of vertex coloring problems for graphs. The module includes exercises. Answers to selected problems are provided. (MP)
