Algorithms and Problem Solving Seminar

Every area of computer science research involves formulating and solving problems. The solutions are in the form of algorithms. In this seminar, every week, we shall discuss some interesting problems which arise from our research work. The emphasis is on clearly formulating and expressing the problem formulations and discuss strategies to solve it. This is more "discussion" oriented rather than one-way "talk" where the speaker does most of the talking. Nevertheless, we hope to have one driving speaker every week.

Mondays -1:30 - 2:30 pm  in Coates 256
