Mathematics Seminar on Approximation Algorithms for Steiner Tree Problems with applications in Computational Biology by Dr Srikrishnan Divakaran, Associate Professor of Computer Science. SIAS
Title: Approximation Algorithms for Steiner Tree Problems with applications in Computational Biology
About the Talk:
Dive into the world of Steiner Tree Problems (STP) – a classical NP-hard combinatorial optimisation problem with applications in computational biology and network wiring. This is a self-contained talk and will begin with highlighting the complexity of this problem and its structure in comparison with the easier Minimum Spanning Tree problem (MST). The crux of the talk will focus on the development and analysis of approximation algorithms and heuristics for Tree Alignment.
