Ongoing Combinatorial Game Theory Research

Lay Summary 

This ongoing research looks at mis’ere games from a combinatorial game theory approach. Projects are centred around using computer programming to find solutions to games on graphs. Research projects often engage inter-university collaborations and student research assistants through programs like WISE (Women In Science and Engineering) and a collaborative research grant from the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS).
