Maps, designs and groups.Supervisor: prof. RNDr. Jozef Širáň, DrSc.
This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.
|Project description:||Group actions on surfaces are usually studied by means of maps (embedded graphs) with some level of transitivity. In our project we propose to extend this by including groups acting on block designs and on other combinatorial structures related to surfaces. Besides new characterization results for groups acting on maps with various levels of transitivity we expect also new results in surface representations of designs. Applications are anticipated in algebraic and topological graph theory, design theory, and in the degree-diameter problem.|
