Centre for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science



Welcome to CDMTCS, a joint venture involving the School of Computer Science and the Mathematics and Philosophy Departments of The University of Auckland in New Zealand. CDMTCS was founded in 1995 to support basic research on the interface between mathematics and computing, to foster research and development in these areas within the South Pacific region, and to create links between researchers in that region and their counterparts in the rest of the world.
