Topic: 

Mapping the Internet

Description: 

When you load a webpage, watch a video, send an email, or do any other task on the internet, packets of information travel along a path from you to your destination. But where, physically, is this path? We answer this question by using traceroutes, the speed of light, a directed graph, and a linear program.

 

Speaker Biography: Stefan Hannie is a researcher and developer at Corvum. He recently completed his PhD in Mathematics at Simon Fraser University where he studied graph minors and topological graph theory.
