Supervised / Mentored Students

  • Bachelor's Thesis Celina Strasser: Intersection of longest paths in connected graphs, ongoing.
  • Bachelor's Thesis Samira Majser: Efficient recursive computation of the chromatic polynomial, ongoing.
  • Bachelor's Thesis David Rackl: Cycles in the Collatz sequence -- An approach using 2-adic arithmetic, ongoing.
  • Mentor PhD Thesis Shudian Zhao: Solving Polynomial Optimization Problems using Semidefinite Programming, ongoing.
  • Co-Supervisor PhD Thesis Sarah J. Selkirk: To be concretized at a later point, ongoing.

While I am happy to discuss topics from discrete mathematics at any point, some ideas can be found below.

Students from both mathematics as well as from the teacher training program are very much welcome!
