Abstract: We will discuss Chapter 7 of Chung's book `Spectral Graph Theory'. We will first give lower bounds on the Cheeger contant of symmetrical graphs. We will also compute the spectra of distance transitive graphs. Finally, we will mention the methodology of computing the spectra of vertex transitive graphs.
