Mission of the Institute for Algorithms and Complexity

We design, develop and analyze algorithms with the goal of optimizing systems and mechanisms in science, society and engineering, to increase welfare and save on resources. Our focus is on both theoretical algorithm design as well as practical algorithm engineering, with the purpose of advancing the state-of-the-art and making it accessible to researchers, students and engineers inside and outside the university.

We work in international and interdisciplinary networks to solve highly complex optimization tasks. We offer students the chance to participate in this research process, to advance their knowledge and contribute to solving important challenges in science and industry.
