Algorithms

Brief overview of the research field

This research field brings together aspects of theoretical and practical computer science. Typically it concerns the analysis of existing methods, or the development of new ones, for solving a problem. Primary criteria are the accuracy of the results, complexity, and efficiency optimization with respect to runtime or space requirements. Datastructures and probability theory play a central role here.

This area is represented by research groups in the Department of Computer Science, the Cluster of Excellence MMCI and the Max Planck Institute for Informatics.
