A Survey of Graph Theory and Applications in Neo4J

In this talk we will look at some basic ideas in graph theory and develop them to show more complex ideas pertaining to other areas of math and more complex applications of graph theory like algorithms and network theory and of course how these concepts pertain to Neo4j.  No prior knowledge of math is assumed for the talk.

Geoff Moes is a Software Developer and math enthusiast. He blogs at elegantcoding.com.

The Navy League Building Conference Center is what some people call the room.  The building closes at 6 PM, but we’ll hang out there to let everyone in on the Wilson Blvd entrance. Call Wes @[masked] if you get stuck outside. 

Parking is not free in the building ~$8 for the night. Street parking opens up at 6PM, if you can find a spot. Parking is available on Adams Street on the west side of the building.  Left turn around the building from Wilson, or left turn in front of the building from Clarendon.

Courthouse Metro is very easy [if you know the trick!]. At metro, go up the escalator and through a turnstile, and make an immediate right turn to the elevator. Take the elevator to the street, and as you exit the elevator, cross the street in front of you (Clarendon), go left to get on Wayne Street, and walk a short block to Wilson. Turn left around the bank and enter 2300 Wilson Blvd (Navy League Building). If you miss the elevator, you have to walk about 3 blocks twice, once underground and once on the street.

Looking forward to it! Thanks again to Segue Technologies for providing the meeting space, and to Neo Technology for beer and pizza.

    I posted the videos. You can find them embedded in a blog post followup that I wrote: http://www.elegantcoding.com/2014/07/a-survey-of-graph-theory-and.html

    Hi Geoff,

    Thanks, for the direct link.
    I could download it offline. Surprisingly, it could not open directly in my Chrome browser, though it does for other PDF files downloaded from the Web.
    The slide are quite refreshing and refreshed by Graph Theory knowledge.

    Regards,

    Will there be a video and/or webcast of this meetup?

    • Wes F.

      There will hopefully be a video posted afterward. Geoff is going to try to record himself, which may prove challenging--but hopefully we'll get it. :)

    I would like to be able to send a SPARQL query to Neo4j and have it turn the query into a series of map reduce jobs that are fired against files of graph data stored on the hadoop cluster

    • Wes F.

      There's a SPARQL plugin, but I'm not sure what you mean as far as map reduce. Neo4j has its native store format and I think it's non-trivial to change it. Are you thinking of having Neo4j embedded run within the hadoop processes across many machines? Probably a better question for the google group: https://groups.google....­

    • Chris M.

      Just as as Hive will turn a SQL query into map reduce jobs on HDFS, I was hoping there has been some work to enable Neo4j to do the same thing with SPARQL.

    Does anyone have any experience running Neo4J on Hadoop?
