Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications

The Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (DIMAP) has been established in March 2007 by the University of Warwick, partially funded by an EPSRC Science and Innovation Award EP/D063191/1 of £3.8 million. The Centre builds on a collaboration among

The DIMAP is co-located in the adjacent new Computer Science and Mathematics buildings and it is directed by a Management Board led by Prof. Artur Czumaj, with the advice on scientific direction from the DIMAP Advisory Board.


Vision for the Centre

DIMAP is a multidisciplinary research centre supporting an internationally competitive programme of research in discrete modelling, algorithmic analysis, and combinatorial (discrete) optimisation. It aims to support a thriving Industrial Affiliates Programme, and develop collaborative research rooted in discrete mathematics, involving researchers at other UK universities. The Centre also contributes to the development of undergraduate modules and taught postgraduate modules within degrees offered by the participating departments. With a number of internationally renowned researchers, an extensive programme of scientific seminars (including Combinatorics Seminar), international workshops and visiting researchers, and a multidisciplinary angle, DIMAP is one of the leading international research centres in discrete mathematics and its applications in computer science and operational research.


New positions


Positions

DIMAP has appointed several internationally renowned researchers, including the following:

DIMAP has funded also several post-doc positions and PhD fellowships, with the appointments at the Department of Computer Science, the Warwick Mathematics Institute, and the Warwick Business School.


WBS research translates into practical success

Research by Vladimir Deineko, WBS Associate Professor of Operational Research and member of DIMAP, has recently provided two examples of academic research translating successfully into practice. Read more here.
