Exploring The Game of Cycles

In his 2020 book, Mathematics for Human Flourishing, Francis Su introduced the game of cycles, a combinatorial game played on a planar graph. In this summer 2022 undergraduate research project, E. Kautz and J. Zonnefeld explored the game and accompanying winning strategies for certain classes of boards.
