Date of publication: 5. 5. 2015

Graph theory and algorithms seminar

**Currents and aromaticity**

**Patrick Fowler** (Department of Chemistry, University of Sheffield)

**Abstract. **I will talk about currents induced in aromatic molecules by external
magnetic fields, why chemists are interested in them, how we now
calculate them, and how graph theory can be used to enrich chemical
understanding and give new insights into the patterns we obtain.

This
talk touches on joint work with, amongst others, David Bean, Bill Bird,
Chris Gibson, Remco Havenith, Leo Jenneskens, Dan Jenkinson, Wendy
Myrvold, Alessandro Soncini, and Erich Steiner.
