Emerging applications of advanced computational methods and discrete mathematics. (2002–2003)
Ongoing improvements in computer performance are revolutionising research in combinatorial discrete mathematics, and leading to exciting new applications in information technology and the biological and chemical sciences. As a result, substantial international research effort, both at universities and in commercial and industrial organisations, is being channelled into high-performance computation and theoretical problems in combinatorial mathematics. Our aim is to develop and apply advanced computational methods through the study of several unsolved theoretical problems in design theory and practical problems in exact matrix computation and drug design.
