Prof. Dr. Shmuel Zaks, new Visiting Researcher
15 February 2013
Dr. Zaks graduated in Computer Science (1979) from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA, and since then he has been working on several Theoretical Computer Science topics: Graph and Combinatorial Algorithms, Discrete Mathematics and Combinatorics, Distributed Computing, ATM Networks, and Optical Networks. Most of his research has Graph-Theoretic and Algorithmic flavor.
His main research in recent years has been on Algorithmic issues of Optical Networks. He looks at problems originated in Optical Networks, models them as graph-theoretic optimization problems, and then studies all Algorithmic aspects: design and analysis of algorithms, complexity and parameterized complexity, approximation, and on-line algorithms.
