Dr. Mohammad Nur S. Paspasan, professor of the College of Science and Mathematics (CSM) Mathematics Department, presented his paper “Edge Domination and Total Edge Domination in the Corona of Graphs” during the Mathematics Teachers Association of the Philippines Tertiary Level (MTAP-TL), Inc. International Convention held on July 27-29, 2016 at the Citystate Asturias Hotel Palawan, Puerto Prinsesa City, Palawan.
MTAP-TL Conference aims to discuss the current issues and aspects in the field of teaching and assessment of Mathematics. This conference was attended by Math teachers from different parts of the world. Dr. Paspasan, who took his doctoral degree in Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT), presented his paper together with his adviser Dr. Sergio R. Canoy, Jr. of Department of Mathematics and Statistics, College of Science and Mathematics of MSU-IIT.
Dr. Paspasan is proud that he was able to present his paper in this international conference especially that this only happens once in four years. “I feel honored and privileged to present my paper and also represent WMSU in this international conference,” said Dr. Paspasan during an interview. “I also submitted this paper to Hikari Ltd, an international publisher, and it will be published under Applied Mathematical Sciences category. It’s now awaiting publication,” the professor further added.
Hikari Ltd is a publisher of international journals and books in science, technology and medicine founded in 2005. Hikari editions cover a wide range of disciplines with journals cataloged in significant number of libraries and specialized repositories.
The CSM faculty also presented his study entitled “Edge Domination and Total Edge Domination in the Join of Graphs” during the 2016 Mathematical Society of the Philippines Convention held on May 30-31 at the Bayfront Hotel, Cebu City. This paper was already published by Hikari Ltd, categorized under Applied Mathematical Sciences.
Also in December 2015, another paper of Dr. Paspasan entitled ““Restrained Total Edge Domination in Graphs” was published by Hikari Ltd. This paper was also judged as Best Paper during the National Convention of Mathematics Teachers Association of the Philippines Tertiary Level (MTAP-TL), Inc. held on July 29-31, 2015 at the Saint Louis University in Baguio City.
