Overlap between theory and systems fields in CS

Course Queries Syllabus Queries

Max. 2000 characters



( 4 months ago )

I have finally had some serious graduate-level exposure to CS Theory and loved it. I really enjoyed complexity theory (time and space complexity, the different classes, reductions to prove NP-Completeness), and algorithm analysis. I am still very interested in Operating Systems, software engineering, and network/information security.

My question is: What would some starting places to look into if I want to find direct overlaps between CS Theory (algorithm design and analysis, complexity theory, information theory, etc) and, OS, or software engineering? I guess I am looking for areas that might have project possibilities that will test and expand my knowledge in both theory and either OS or SE.

For Security the best one I could think of is theory of cryptography, but I am kind of at a loss when it comes to the other two.

what's your interest
