Overview

This volume contains the proceedings of a conference held in July, 2007 at the University of Minnesota, Duluth, in honor of Joseph A. Gallian's 65th birthday and the 30th anniversary of the Duluth Research Experience for Undergraduates. In keeping with Gallian's extraordinary expository ability and broad mathematical interests, the articles in this volume span a wide variety of mathematical topics, including algebraic topology, combinatorics, design theory, forcing, game theory, geometry, graph theory, group theory, optimization, and probability. Some of the papers are purely expository while others are research articles. The papers are intended to be accessible to a general mathematics audience, including first-year or second-year graduate students. This volume should be especially useful for mathematicians seeking a new research area, as well as those looking to enrich themselves and their research programs by learning about problems and techniques used in other areas of mathematics.
