Graph theory is to BSM as Jesus is to Church School.

Standard

For those of us who attended Church School every week growing up, we quickly learned that if you didn’t know the answer to a a question being asked, you should just say “Jesus.” And much of the time, that was actually the right answer. As we got older that fact became more and more of a joke.

At BSM, a similar sort of joke has evolved, but replacing the “Jesus answer” with graph theory! A friend here told me that he has decided one of the reasons Hungarian mathematics is so strong is because they know how to simplify *any* question to one about directed graphs, connected graphs, simple graphs, bipartite graphs, etc. and then apply those theorems.

effx0When a professor asks how we should approach the problem, and you don’t know, you should probably say “represent it as a graph.” ;)
