Information about our Research Work

The research at the chair of Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel focuses on investigation of scientific principles, methodes and technologies to design and implement novel Internet technologies and innovative Internet-based IT-systems [more reading]. We concentrate on efficient treatment of big data und revealing potentials of Cloud computing and In-Memory technologie. In particular, we are scientifically active in the following application fields:

Former research interests from Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel and his team aer focused on the theoretical foundations of computer science, in particular on

    • OBDD-based data structures and algorithms for the design and formal verification of digital systems and VLSI circuits, and on
    • Computational Complexity.
