The regional German television network MDR produced a TV programme on randomness. It aired September 28, 2017 as part of their LexiTV science magazine. The whole programme can be found here (in German). Tobias Friedrich gave a short interview on randomness in computer science.
The traditional beach volleyball tournament at the 2017 HPI Summer Party was won by a team made up of members and students of the Algorithm Engineering group. Thomas Bläsius, Fabian Dumke, Philipp Fischbeck, Jennifer Stamm, and Björn Zyska became this-years volleyball champions.
Every year in May, we take a new group picture. In 2017 the researchers and students of the chair were again pictured by Kay Herschelmann.
Our research focus is on theoretical computer science and algorithm engineering. We are equally interested in the mathematical foundations of algorithms and developing efficient algorithms in practice. A special focus is on random structures and methods.
