Webinar on How to Solve a Murder Using Mathematics?

The Webinar on How to Solve a Murder Using Mathematics? took place on Friday, March 26th, 2021 from 12 pm until 1:30 pm, with Mucuy-kak Guevara, Professor of Mathematics at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.

The invited speaker started the virtual event by explaining what discrete mathematics is and what graphs are. Mucuy-kak Guevara then described several basic results of graph theory that helped us solve the murder of the Duke of Densmore and discover that it was Apolonia, one of his 8 ex wives, who was responsible for his death. The speaker also shared another example in which graph theory can be applied to help 11 classmates organize their birthday parties.
