# The Mathematics of Networks

3 October 2015

Graph theory is an interesting idea of connecting dots with lines. It may sound like a simple game, but underneath it is some complex mathematics. On our show today is Dr. Paul Wenger, Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the Rochester Institute of Technology. He’s going to talk to us about the mathematics of graph theory. In our second half we’ll talk social networks and the six degrees of Kevin Bacon.
