What is involved?
Research into networks and the understanding and processing of their surrounding environments has a strong foundation in mathematical and computing sciences.
This theme encompasses research into the computational foundations of economics/game theory and economic theory in computer science.
Most of the activities in networks and communications are brought together with NeST - Network Science and Technologies, a new initiative to help establish a well-founded and vibrant environment that provides a vehicle for stimulating applications of foundational research in network sciences and technologies.
More activities that fall under networks and communication research encompass areas of our own research in the school:
- Algorithms, complexity theory and optimisation
- Economics and computation
- Networks and distributed computing
- Advanced networks
- High-frequency engineering.
