The Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (DIMAP) has been established in March 2007 by the University of Warwick, partially funded by an EPSRC Science and Innovation Award of £3.8 million. The Centre builds on a collaboration between
- the Department of Computer Science,
- the Warwick Mathematics Institute, and
- the Operational Research & Management Sciences group in the Warwick Business School.
The DIMAP is directed by an Executive Team led by Dr Artur Czumaj.
The vision for the CentreThe goal of the DIMAP is to establish a strong multidisciplinary research centre supporting an internationally competitive programme of research in discrete modelling, algorithmic analysis, and combinatorial (discrete) optimization. It aims to support a thriving Industrial Affiliates Programme, and develop collaborative research rooted in discrete mathematics, involving researchers at other UK universities. The Centre will also contribute to the development of undergraduate modules and taught postgraduate modules within degrees offered by the participating departments.
Discrete mathematics lies at the heart of a range of multi-disciplinary activities: it plays a central role in the modelling of the world around us. Examples of industrial applications include data mining, networks, robotics, genetics, image processing, commerce and telecommunications.
The outreachThe outreach activities of the project will include Discrete mathematics workshops and ad-hoc company visits.
Companies benefit from getting access to internationally leading expertise in the areas of discrete mathematics (such as numerical and statistical algorithms, image and signal processing, network flows, discrete simulation, distributed games and auctions, grid generation, optimal transport and rearrangements, collision detection), developing new relationships, broadening the sources of knowledge for their business, and most importantly getting problems solved.
To get involved
The KTN for Industrial Mathematics is helping DIMAP to identify opportunities for industry and academia to collaborate in the area of discrete mathematics. Future events and case studies will be publicised through the Industrial Mathematics KTN website and email bulletin. If you would like to receive notice of these events and/or wish to find out more about how to engage with DIMAP please contact Dr David Allwright.
