**GRAPH THEORY AND COMBINATORICS **

Graph theory is the branch of mathematics concerned about how networks can be encoded and their properties measured. It has been enriched by growing influences from studies of social and complex networks. On the other hand, combinatorics is the branch of mathematics dealing with combinations of objects to a finite set satisfying certain properties.The GTC cluster spearheads activities that promote and help in the development of graph theory and combinatorics like conducting researches focusing on graceful graphs and monographs and providing support to student-researchers in graph theory and combinatorics. |
