Abstract: In this first presentation of the Graph Theory Reading Group meeting in Semester Two, we will discuss Chapter 6 of Chung's book `Spectral Graph Theory'. Topics to be covered include definitions of expanders, a few isoperimetric bounds in terms of Laplacian eigenvalues, and examples of explicit construction of expanders.
