About the Project

The existence of certain structures or properties of sparse graphs and their efficient algorithmic identification or approximation presents interesting challenges where these are finite.

Exploring the links between the efficient algorithmic identification of structures or constructions and almost-everywhere agreement protocols that have been studied since swork by Dwork, Peleg, Pippenger and Upfal offers an interesting perspective when considering not only random schemes.

This work is to be informed by the increasingly pressing use of "Digital Twins" relying on adaptable communication structures to allow the representation and ultimately modelling, control, and optimisation of operations particularly of cyber-physical systems.

Successful applicants should have a background in mathematics, computer science, or a closely related discipline; candidates may have the opportunity to collaborate and visit a research group in this area at NTNU, Norway as part of their studies.

Questions may be directed to Prof. Stephen Wolthusen
