Higher Studies

Gokul Krishna P, Jayakrishna Menon and Arvind S Raj, alumni of bi0s,got fully funded PhD at Arizona State University

Discrete Mathematics Center

Discrete Mathematics Center focuses in research and training. The areas of interest include: Discrete Mathematics, Algorithmic Design and Analysis, Bio-informatics and Bio-computation.

Students of Discrete Mathematics Center participate in research and problem solving activities. Subsequent to graduation they pursue higher education and industrial careers as well. Some of them are either pursuing or obtained graduate degrees from reputed universities across Europe and America. Some of them are working for industries including Hackerrank, Amazon, DirectI, Cisco and Flipkart. The active areas of research include the following. Theoretical-computer-science (Bio-computation): Efficient algorithms to transform strings and permutations with various operations, this research has applications in genetic mutations and evolutionary biology. Bio-informatics: Computational enumeration of protein structures and the subsequent frequency distribution analysis. This research explores the protein structure space. Combinatorics: Computing cardinalities of subsets of Sn with k adjacencies and applications thereof. This research investigates alternative ways computing either distances or expected distances in the symmetric group Sn for a given set of operation.

Student Associations

A strong membership comprised of all Computer Science students and faculty members of the Computer Science Department provides a solid base for the student associations to move their strategies and plans forward.
