SFB F50 Algorithmic and Enumerative Combinatorics

The Special Research Program (SFB, in short for the German name SpezialForschungsBereich) "Algorithmic and Enumerative Combinatorics" (F50) is a special effort of three institutes, the Faculty of Mathematics (University of Vienna), the Institute for Discrete Mathematics and Geometry (Technical University Vienna), and the Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (Johannes Kepler University Linz) funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). The first funding period 2013-2017 of the SFB started on March 1, 2013.

Algorithmic and Enumerative Combinatorics is in our understanding the general research area which is defined by the interplay of the fields of Enumerative Combinatorics, Analytic Combinatorics, and Algorithmics. It is a very active research area, which, aside from the three fields fuelling each other mutually, receives as well constant impetus from outside, by its interaction with algebra, probability, statistical physics, and computer science. It is very modern as it necessarily requires skills in many different fields, and as it is unthinkable nowadays to make progress in this area without using (the) computer (algebra).

The members of the SFB meet several times per semester for holding joint seminars. External people who are interested in these events are welcome to attend. Just subscribe to the mailing list aec-friends@risc.jku.at to receive announcements about date, location, and scientific program of the next meetings.
