Discrete Mathematics

Our Research

We are one of the largest and oldest discrete math groups in Canada. Our group has a wide variety of expertise in pure and applied discrete math and combinatorics. Our research themes include Structural Graph Theory, matroids, enumeration, bioinformatics, ancestral genomics, digital communications, and Coding Theory.

 

Join us for our weekly Discrete Math Seminar every Tuesday from 1:30 - 2:30 in SC K9509

News:  We will be hosting 2 events in 2019 - CanaDAM 2019 and Fq14
