Centre for Discrete Mathematics and Computing


Welcome    

Welcome to the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and Computing, a School Research Centre within the School of Physical Sciences (Mathematics) and the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering.

The Centre was established at the beginning of 1998, when the Centre for Combinatorics (within the Department of Mathematics at that time) and the Algorithms Group (within the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at that time) were merged.

The Centre acts as a national base for the international body, the Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications, as a regional base for the Combinatorial Mathematics Society of Australasia Incorporated (CMSA), and publishes an international journal, the Australasian Journal of Combinatorics, for the CMSA.

The Centre is one of 16 groups worldwide listed on the World Combinatorics Exchange.

 

AIMS
