SmallTalk: Exploring a Graph using Depth-First-Search Algorithm Time: 12:30p - 1:30p Location: Laughlin Auditorium Details:
Speaker: Benjamin Soibam, University of Houston
Google, Facebook, Physicists, Biologists and Computer Scientists, they all rely on Graphs to store and process huge amount of data. A strong understanding of Graphs by engineering or computer science students is critical for their future endeavors. In my 20-30 minutes talk, I will give a very brief introduction to Graphs - formal definitions and how graphs are represented in computer science. Then, I will talk about one elementary algorithm which is used in "exploring" a Graph called Depth-First-Search Algorithm (DFS). I shall also go through some simple Graphs to demonstrate DFS. I will pitch my talk to students who are not familiar with Graphs.
SmallTalk is an informal colloquium series on topics related to Mathematics and Computer Science. Talks are limited to 30 minutes. Refreshments provided by the Mount MAA and ACM Student Chapters.
Master of Science in Biotechnology and Management Info. Session Time: 3:00p - 4:00p Location: Science Building Details:
COAD Science Room 314
Dr. Matthew Rittler, Director of the MSBM Program
Interested in a career in the rapidly growing biotechnology industry? It necessitates the education of individuals who can successfully navigate the terrains of both science and business. The master of science degree in biotechnology and management (MSBM) is a cross disciplinary degree program, designed to complement the scientist's ability to discuss rational product design and the experimental processes with the skills necessary for a career in product development, marketing, and personnel management. As a graduate of this program, you will serve as a vital link between biotechnology research and development and the process of moving products to market. Come out on March 20th and find out more about this exciting new program.
