Title: Spectral Properties of Graph Laplacians
Abstract: By turning graphs into linear algebra, we discover that eigenvalues carry interesting information about our original graph. This talk will start by defining the graph laplacian, then working our way through some easy properties. Our end goal is to cover enough background to motivate and state some facts relating eigenvalues to the sparsity of the graph, such as Cheeger's inequality.
