4434Graph Theory Lessons
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=84776
The applets contain topics typically found in undergraduate graph theory and discrete structures classes like null graphs, the handshaking lemma, isomorphism, complete graphs, subgraphs, regular graphs, platonic graphs, adjacency matrices, graph coloring, bipartite graphs, simple circuits, Euler and Hamilton circuits, trees, unions and sums of graphs, complements of graphs, line graphs, spanning trees, plane graphs, shortest paths, minimal spanning trees. The applet utilizes Petersen software written by the author. Peterson can draw, edit and manipulate simple graphs, examine properties of the graphs, and demonstrate them using computer animation.Sat, 24 Sep 2005 00:00:00 -0700Discrete Math Resources

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=974114
This video was recorded at Machine Learning Summer School (MLSS), Canberra 2005. Graph matching plays a key role in many areas of computing from computer vision to networks where there is a need to determine correspondences between the components (vertices and edges) of two attributed structures. In recent years three new approaches to graph matching have emerged as replacements to more traditional heuristic methods. These new methods are: * Least squares - where the optimal correspondence in determined in terms of deriving the best fitting permutation matrix between sets. * Spectral methods - where optimal correspondences are derived via subspace projections in the graph eigenspaces. * Graphical models - where algorithms such as the junction tree algorithm are used to infer the optimal labeling of the nodes of one graph in terms of the other and that satisfy similarity constraints between vertices and edges. In this lecture we review and compare these methods and demonstrate examples where this applies to point set and line matching.Tue, 10 Feb 2015 13:28:34 -0800Graph Theory Tutorials

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=940895
This video was recorded at 4th European Conference on Complex Systems. Basic Question: Do the available Internet-related connectivity measurements and their analysis support the sort of claims that can be found in the existing complex networks literature? Key Issues: What about data hygiene? What about statistical rigor? What about model validation? Author discusses some of the main problems and challenges associated with measuring, inferring, and modeling various types of Internet-related connectivity structures. To this end, he uses some known examples to illustrate the need to understand the process by which Internet connectivity measurements are obtained, explore the sensitivity of inferred graph properties to known ambiguities in the data, be more critical with respect to the dominant, preferential attachmenttype network modeling paradigm, and be more serious/ambitious when it comes to model validation. Ignoring any of these issues is bound to produce results that are best described by the well-known aphorism "lies, damned lies, and statistics."Sun, 8 Feb 2015 21:11:25 -0800
