Research Away Day

Algorithms and Complexity Themes


Three themes

Three Themes

  • Algorithm Design, Analysis and Engineering

  • Computational Complexity of Algebraic Structures.

  • Optimization and Heuristics

  • Common thread: study (mathematically or empirically) the amount of resources (CPU time or memory) needed to solve a particular problem. Find algorithms to minimize resources.


Algorithms research

Algorithms Research

Design and

Analysis

Applications

Algorithm Engg

  • Mathematical analysis of:

  • -solution quality

  • - resource usage

  • or, proofs of impossibility.

  • RIGOUR/ : RAE √

  • Implement algorithms

  • as computer code. Empirical

  • analyses of:

  • -solution quality

  • -resource usage

  • RAE?

“Interesting” abstractions

of real computational

problems.


Algorithm design geography

Algorithm Design + Geography

  • Relevant sub-interests:

    • storage and processing of large data sets.

  • Specific topics:

    • space-efficient storage and processing of XML files

    • data mining

      • expertise mainly in “pattern mining”

      • e.g. given observations of vehicles at various points (ANPR), find interesting patterns of behaviour

    • parallel computing (GPUs)


Geometric geographical data

Geometric Geographical Data

  • No current expertise, but related to current strengths:

    • Digital Elevation Maps -> Flow data
