Real World Graph Connectivity
Lind, Joy; Narayan, Darren
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, v28 n3 p159-161 Sep 2009
We present the topic of graph connectivity along with a famous theorem of Menger in the real-world setting of the national computer network infrastructure of "National LambdaRail". We include a set of exercises where students reinforce their understanding of graph connectivity by analysing the "National LambdaRail" network. Finally, we give suggestions for using this module as a project in an undergraduate mathematics course.
