Our chair for Algorithm Engineering - LS11 - has been founded in 1985. Professor Hans-Paul Schwefel, the predecessor of Professor Petra Mutzel, was the head of the chair (called Systemanalyse) until his retirement in 2006. Currently, the chair consists of four research groups:

Algorithm Engineering cycle
Prof. Dr. Petra Mutzel: Algorithm Engineering (Chair)

  • Algorithm Engineering, in particular graph algorithms and data structures
  • Combinatorial Optimization (polynomial time and ILP-based)
  • Algorithmic Data Analysis, Graph Mining
  • Network design and optimization
  • Graph and Network Visualization
  • Analysis of chemical structures and biological networks

Prof. Dr. Johannes Fischer: Algorithmic Foundations and Education in Computer Science

  • Text Indexing
  • Succinct Data Structures
  • (lower) secondary computer science education
  • Algorithms for Big Data

Prof. Dr. Sven Rahmann: Bioinformatics for High-Throughput Technologies
Sven Rahmann is now chair of Genome Informatics at the University of Duisburg-Essen. The group continues its research and teaching courses at LS XI.

  • Efficient algorithms for large biological datasets in genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics
  • Analysis of high-throughput sequencing data (e.g., SOLiD, Illumina, 454)
  • Analysis of spectrometry data (IMS, MS, NMR) with a focus on metabolomics
  • Reconstruction and analysis of complex biological networks, especially protein hypernetworks (protein networks with additional constraints)
  • Algorithmic statistics in bioinformatics and applications of combinatorial optimization in bioinformatics

Schwefel's function
