Algebraic and Geometric Algorithms Group (ΕρΓΑ)
The Erga Lab addresses problems in scientific and geometric computing, with a current emphasis on algorithmic data science and machine learning. Our core expertise lies in algebraic algorithms, the study and solution of polynomial equations, as well as computational, convex, and metric geometry. Based on software development, we employ our methods to the mathematical modeling of the physical world, with specific applications ranging from robotics and bioinformatics, to geometric modeling and VLSI design, up to meteorology and fintech. The Lab was founded in 2002 and is headed by Professor Ioannis Emiris. It is part of the joint research team AROMATH affiliated with INRIA Sophia-Antipolis (France), and is also affiliated with the Institute for the Management of Information Systems of ATHENA Research and Innovation Center (Greece).
