Research → Specializations → Algorithms

The use of algorithms, a recipe for solving a problem, is as old as humans. Even the formal study, as per the recorded history, dates back to more than 4000 years ago. Since the inception of computers, algorithms have been vital to the working and efficiency of the computers. Today the algorithm has grown to a vast area of study.

The study (and research) in the domain of algorithms is growing at an unprecedented rate due to the emerging challenges and opportunities. The department is particularly interested in studying algorithms in the domain of scheduling. More specifically, Ithe department focuses on scheduling in systems, a general-purpose computing system to automotive systems, with the crucial system design objectives/constraints such as timing, energy, and reliability. Emphasis is also given to computational geometry problems.
