Welcome to the Penn State Theoretical Computer Science Group!
Theoretical Computer Science is a fascinating subject dealing with the foundations of Computer Science. We have a
strong Theory group comprising faculty having diverse research interests in algorithms and complexity theory.
In particular, the areas we work on include:
- Approximation Algorithms
- Computational Molecular Biology
- Computational Complexity
- Data Privacy
- Graph Theoretic Algorithms
- Quantum Computing
- Distributed Algorithms
- Coding Theory
- Information Theory
We meet once a week for the theory seminar. Some talks are also organized as part of the departmental colloquium .
