Research at the Institute

We are interested in faster and more economic ways of solving problem using intelligent software rather than ever-more-powerful hardware. Our focus is on algorithms and complexity as well as applications in cryptology, steganography, bioinforamtics or quantum informatics. Students participate actively in our research as they write their bachelor, master, and diploma theses.
