- Paper: Paths, Trees and Flowers
This paper is seminal in graph theory. It describes the maximum matchings blossom algorithm, which finds a decomposition of a graph in the maximum number of pairs connected by an edge.
It is also the base of the famous minimum weight maximum matchings algorithm, a very important algorithm used in many applications, from pairing in chess tournaments to resources or worker placement within companies.
The Madrid Chapter would like to give special thanks to ShuttleCloud for providing the venue for this meetup.
