Brimkov's three papers published in seperate journals


Sept. 10, 2020

Boris Brimkov, a Slippery Rock University assistant professor of mathematics and statistics, has cowritten three papers that were published in separate peer-reviewed journals.

Brimkov cowrote a paper titled “On Connectedness of Discretized Sets” that was published in Combinatorial Image Analysis, the refereed proceedings of the 20th International Workshop on Combinatorial Image Analysis conducted in Novi Sad, Serbia, in July 2020. His paper dealt with the process of transferring continuous functions, models, variables and equations into discrete counterparts in a given set of problems in various theoretical and applied disciplines.

Another paper Brimkov wrote, titled “Graphs that are cospectral for the distance Laplacian,” was published in the Electronic Journal of Linear Algebra, a peer-reviewed journal of the International Linear Algebra Society. The paper focused on the distance Laplacian matrix, which, in the mathematical field of graph theory, is a matrix representation of a graph.

Brimkov also cowrote a paper titled “Tangled bases: Revisited” for a special edition of Networks: An International Journal, a journal for analytic modeling of mathematical problems using networks. The article, based on research completed under a National Science Foundation grant, was about branch decomposition, which is a measure of the global connectivity of a graph.
