ESF-EMS-ERCOM Conference on Perspectives in Discrete Mathematics

Jun 24 2012 - 18:00
Jun 29 2012 - 13:00

Centre de Recerca Matemàtica, Bellaterra, Spain

Short description of the event: 

The scope of this conference is Discrete Mathematics in a wide sense: graph theory, combinatorics, discrete geometry, computer science, and applications. One of the main goals is to stress connections with other areas, in particular: analysis, geometry, number theory, physics and probability. We ultimately aim to provide a panoramic view of deep mathematical developments in the area of discrete mathematics.
