Rodger gives Christie Lecture

Published: 12/08/2014

Chris Rodger, the Don Logan Endowed Chair of Mathematics, recently gave the Christie Lecture at the Northeastern Section of the Mathematics Association of America . The Christie Lecture was introduced by the Northeastern Section in 1979 to honor Dan Christie (1915-1975) of Bowdoin College. He was one of the founding fathers of the section, serving two terms as chair and one as governor. The Christie Lecture is given each year during the fall meeting by a distinguished member of the mathematical community. The title of Rodger’s talk was, “Amalgamations and Hamilton Decompositions,” and he addressed the use of amalgamations in the construction of graph decompositions, most often looking for Hamilton cycle decompositions.
