Graduate Student Combinatorics Seminar

This seminar gives graduate students the opportunity to hear and present talks on discrete mathematics, either on topics beyond a standard combinatorics class or on original research. GCS is meant to be a friendly, slightly informal speaking environment where questions are encouraged at all points throughout the talk. We only assume a basic general knowledge of combinatorics (at most, basic combinatorics one might learn in a single semester introductory course), so students in any area are welcome to attend.

Speakers for the GCS are welcome (from the math department, other departments, and elsewhere). Please email Corrine Yap at

corrine [dot] yap [at] rutgers [dot] edu
if you are interested in giving a talk. For tips on how to give a good math talk, see the wiki page. Speakers below are from the Department of Mathematics, unless otherwise noted.

Generously sponsored by DIMACS.

Title: Independent Sets in the Hypercube
Abstract: I will explain an old result of Sapozhenko that counts the number of independent sets in a cube graph. The reference I will be using is this recent exposition.
