Amir Barghi joined Saint Michael’s College at the start of last year’s (2018) spring semester as tenure-track faculty in mathematics. This summer he also helped organize the annual international ‘Summer Combo in Vermont’ conference on July 14, when the College welcomed more than 50 mathematicians to campus.

Amir Barghi of the Saint Michael's Department of Mathematics and Statistics faculty has a new research paper published in the Australasian Journal of Combinatorics entitled “Stirling numbers of the first kind for graphs." Stirling numbers of the second kind for graphs have been studied in recent years, but a closer look at Stirling numbers of the first kind for graphs was missing from the literature. In this paper, Stirling numbers of the first kind for graphs are introduced, and the Stirling numbers of the first kind of elements of some families of graphs are computed, either by providing a combinatorial argument or using generating functions.
