## EVENT DETAILS AND ABSTRACT

**Topology Seminar**
**Title:** An Introduction to Topological Graph Theory

**Speaker:** Professor John Martino

**Speaker Info:** University of Western Michigan

**Brief Description:**

**Special Note**:

**Abstract:**

Topological graph theory is the study of embeddings of graphs
on surfaces. A presentation of a group gives rise to a graph, called a
Cayley graph. This talk will examine some of the properties of Cayley
graph embeddings, particularly embeddings that exhibit a high degree of
symmetry. We may also explore some of topological graph theory's
connections with other fields, especially group theory, topology, and
geometry.
