Cops and robber games and beyond

Overview

Abstract:

Cops-and-robber games have been investigated very often in the recent past, after a lull of a few decades, in part because of their connection to other research areas. We will review some basic notions, indicate a few of the applications that made the games popular, and point to some perhaps unexpected connections to both applied and pure mathematics.
