Theory of Computation provides the foundation needed for effective applications. The theory group at Rensselaer's Computer Science Department brings together researchers in many areas of Computer Science to develop novel approaches and solutions to problems in information technology. Our research is characterized by close collaboration with researchers in diverse application areas such as networking, bioinformatics, visualization, pattern recognition, physics and astronomy, digital library, data mining and experimental algorithmics. The group has regular seminars every Wednesday at 11 a.m. in Lally 02. In every meeting one of the group members or a guest speaker presents a solid work of interest to the community. Researchers from other universities or industry that would like to present or attend are welcome.
