Theoretical Foundations of Computer Science

Theoretical studies and basic research have become indispensable due to the rapid technological development in the field of computer science and the increasing application of information processing. Therefore an important subject of our group is the analysis of complex systems by means of formal models. To achieve this goal we need to deal with correctness of presentation (syntax), correctness of content (semantics), conformity to specifications (verification), and efficient implementation (algorithms and complexity).

Our group is also involved in non-formal basic research of computer science (aims and goals of computer science, links to theory of cognition, links to philosophy, the problem of software correctness, socionics).

Additonally, the group is engaged in the context of innovative teaching concepts. The group was active in two projects in Summer 2013 (german only) and in one more in Summer 2014 (german only) supported by the Lehrlabor.
