Dr. Zehava Zehavit Zvi

Zehavit is a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science at Sami Shamoon College of Engineering, Be’er Sheva. Her Master’s degree was on Brauer trees, a subject combining graph theory and representation theory of finite dimensional algebras. For many finite dimensional algebras, the basis can be described by sets of paths along a directed graph called the quiver, which for the algebras studied in her Master’s thesis was determined by a tree, that is, a graph without cycles. For her Ph.D. and post-doctoral period at Bar-Ilan University, while lecturing various courses in applied mathematics, she continued researching the graph theory direction, but studying the representation theory for more complicated algebras for which the quiver was no longer determined by a tree. Her research interests include Brauer trees, which involve a variety of programmed algorithms, particularly for binary trees
