Implementation Challenge in solving Steiner tree problems

Oleg Burdakov, Department of Mathematics, and his collaborators of the Department of Computer and Information Science, Jonas Kvarnström and Patrik Doherty, won the prestigious Implementation Challenge in solving Steiner tree problems. Their algorithms were based on their theoretical results on optimality conditions. The Challenge was organized by DIMACS. The Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS) is a collaboration between Rutgers University, Princeton University, and the research firms AT&T, Bell Labs, Applied Communication Sciences, and NEC. Internationally recognized key experts in solving Steiner tree problems participated in the Challenge. Oleg Burdakov's team was the best in solving hop-constrained directed Steiner tree problems.
