Welcome to the homepage of DMANET, an electronic news and research network for discrete mathematics and algorithms with about 1900 members worldwide. DMANET is maintained by the Computer Science Department of the University of Cologne in Cologne, Germany.

The scope of the DMA-newsletter includes the mathematical analysis of discrete structures as well as the design of discrete algorithms and their applications in operations research, computer science and engineering.

In particular, DMANET tries to address researchers and practitioners working in the following areas (in a wide sense):

- deterministic algorithms
- random algorithms
- computational complexity
- communication complexity
- combinatorics
- graph theory
- combinatorial optimization
- combinatorial game theory
- learning theory
- linear programming
- mathematical programming
- etc.

DMANET spreads information on conferences, workshops, seminars etc. relating to discrete mathematics and algorithms. It is also meant to be a forum for questions regarding on-going research.

One may announce new preprints and books on DMANET. There is furthermore room for advertising employment opportunities.
