# GAUSS Seminar

Speaker:

Elaina Aceves

Topic:

"A Study of Projections of 2-Bouquet Graphs"

**Abstract:**

In this talk, I extend the concepts of trivializing and knotting numbers for knots to spatial graphs and 2-bouquet graphs, in particular. I will also calculate the trivializing and knotting numbers for projections and pseudodiagrams of 2-bouquet spatial graphs based on the number of precrossings and the placement of the precrossings in the pseudodiagram of the spatial graph. This talk is based on research done during my master's program at Fresno State.
