The algorithmic problem solving group conducts research into mathematical method, in particular the problem-solving skills involved in the formulation and solution of algorithmic problems.  Our goal is to articulate these skills primarily by way of concrete examples, but also by the development of appropriate mathematical theory.


There are no funded studentships available at the present time.  The School of Computer Science offers (full and part) scholarships once a year.  These are highly competitive.  The date that applications are considered varies from year to year.  In order to avoid disappointment, applications for entry in September 2009 should preferably be made before the end of February 2009.  The University of Nottingham’s website should be consulted for information about other sources of funding.
