The MTA-BME Information Systems Research Group started on July 1, 2012 as one of the subsidised research groups of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. In 2017, the research group has been granted a 5-year extension. The leader of the group is Miklós Telek.


Main research topics

Stochastic modelling
We research stochastic modelling techniques of network traffic and queues; development, analysis, optimization and dimensioning in the presence of various types of network traffic and services. We also research stochastic properties of the traffic. For the models proposed, we also implement efficient approximation methods. One of the main priorities throughout the research is scalability of the models, which is necessary for the analysis of complex systems.

Examination of communication strategies
We examine routing algorithms from a theoretical and practical perspective. We research the topology of the World Wide Web to introduce efficient routing algorithms. We also research other routing related problems such as efficient data structures and compression methods to be implemented in routers.

Quantum information and communication
We explore the potential of future quantum communication networks by examining reliable quantum communication over noisy quantum channels and calculating quantum capacity bounds. We also research quantum encryption systems and the information processing model of quantum gravity. We explore and analyse new types of quantum channels.
