The Bergen Algorithms Research Group is researching effective and efficient algorithms that can make computer programs to run as fast as possible.
A special focus is put on hard decision problems, so-called NP-complete problems, and try to find practical algorithm for these.
The picture shows the members of the algorithms group, as of 2013, behind the department building, with Mount Ulriken in the background.
