Title: Tails and Chains

Speaker: Chris Godsil Affiliation: University of Waterloo Zoom: Contact Soffia Arnadottir

Abstract:

Physicists are interested in "graphs with tails"; these are constructed by choosing a graph X and a subset C of its vertices, then attaching a path of length n to each vertex in C. We ask what is the spectrum of such graph? What happen if n increases? We will see that the answer reduces to questions about the matrix

\[ M(\zeta) := (\zeta_\zeta^{-1})I - A -\zeta D \]

where D is the diagonal 01-matrix with D_{i,i}=1 if i is in C.
