Project description

My project includes the application of techniques in algebraic graph theory, to obtain new bounds and non-existence results in geometry. Conversely, finite geometries can yield new (distance-regular) graphs with certain properties, and algebraic techniques can yield a characterization of them. In particular, I intend to further examine a proposed construction relying on substructures in a specific dual polar graph.
