Algorithms (Prof. M. Karpinski)

Randomized and Approximate Algorithms:

In this area Professor Karpinski is occupied with fundamental questions of design of approximate algorithms, organization of parallel and distributed systems as well as the resulting problems of network communication.

Professor Karpinski is also interested in fundamental questions of randomization as computational resource. For some important computational problems, it appears now that the randomized or pseudo-randomized algorithms are more efficient than the deterministic ones in terms of running time, hardware size, circuit depths, etc.. Recently essential progresses have been made, e.g. the design of efficient approximate algorithms for various combinatorial and algebraic enumeration and optimization problems. Solutions to these problems have applications ranging from the algorithms, circuit design and coding theory to statistic mechanic und quantum theory.

In particular the research topics include:
