Research Focus

 

The Center engages in what is viewed to be the core of computer science-  algorithms research. The design and analysis of algorithms is the basis for the formation of computer science as a research discipline, and their successful implementation in practice is what makes computers and networks useful and productive devices. Algorithmic innovation drives much of the creation of new computing technology and its life-transforming and profitable commercial application.
