About the Project

The aim of the project is to use and apply the discrete mathematics and data visualisation techniques such as graphs, trees, combinatorics etc, to enhance existing clustering techniques in big graphs with potential applications such as nature language processing. The study will be largely based on research of existing methodologies, review of discrete mathematics and data visualisation techniques with a focus on graph and text mining literature and algorithms.
