Seminar: Selected Topics in Efficient Algorithms
- Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Susanne Albers
- Module: IN2107, IN8901, TUMonline
Time and Place:
The seminar will be held as a block seminar in February 2023.
This seminar addresses Master's students in Computer Science with a scientific interest in the design and analysis of algorithms. The seminar participants will work on selected (research) literature. The papers cover a spectrum of topics, including (a) computational geometry, (b) graph algorithms, (c) algorithmic game theory, and (d) energy-efficient algorithms.
