Geometric, Approximation & Distributed Algorithms
A Computer Science Theory Lab at the University of Manitoba

About

 
Welcome to the GADA lab at the University of Manitoba! We study algorithms and the complexity of problems from a wide variety of research domains, such as computational geometry, approximation algorithms, online algorithms, and distributed algorithms. The common theme to all of our activities is the rich interplay between interesting problems from Computer Science and the techniques and rigour of Mathematics. Our weekly meetings alternate between problem-solving sessions and research talks, and anyone can join us! Explore this page to find out more.
