Kasper Green Larsen awarded a Villum's Young Investigator grant

Kasper Green Larsen, Department of Computer Science, has been awarded DKK 5 million for the ‘Algorithm Limitations’ project.

Kasper elaborates on his project: Some of the most important questions in Computer Science ask whether or not concrete computational problems can solved efficiently (fast) or not by a computer. In this project, we will develop mathematical tools for proving that such problems cannot possibly be solved efficiently. Such conclusions can save research funding and time that would otherwise have been wasted trying to develop solutions that don’t exist. This grant makes it possible to hire a Ph.D. student and a Post Doc.
