|12/10/2015 - The diameter or the worldwide road network computed by the Distributed algorithms and graphs team|
Computing the two points that are furthest apart one from another is quadratic in general. However the techniques developped in the team have enabled the computation of the longest road trip in the world... (Map at http://gang.inria.fr/road).

The project DuaLL is about duality in Formal Languages and Logic, adopting a unifying approach to complexity and semantics. Dualities between algebraic and topological structure are pervasive in mathematics, and toggling back and forth between them has often been associated with important breakthroughs. The main objective of this project is to bring such topo-algebraic dualities to bear on a number of subjects in theoretical computer science thereby advancing, systematizing, and unifying them.

The interdisciplinary project Distributed Biological Algorithms (DBA) aims at demonstrating the usefulness of a distributed algorithmic perspective in understanding complex biological systems. The focus is on the biology domain of collective animal behaviour. The project suggests new methodologies for combining theoretical algorithmic results with experimental measurements of biological parameters. (Translated from the CNRS website)
