**Discrete Mathematics Group at URI**

The faculty of our group is interested in a wide range of areas in discrete mathematics
both pure and applied: graph theory, network theory, extremal and probabilistic methods,
analytic methods, finite model theory, combinatorial games, combinatorial optimization,
bioinformatics applications.

**Seminar**
Our seminar is held **Fridays 1-2pm in Lippitt 204**.
