Section: Overall Objectives


Mascotte is a joint team between INRIA Sophia Antipolis Méditerranée and the laboratory I3S (Informatique Signaux et Systèmes de Sophia Antipolis) which itself belongs to CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) and UNS (University of Nice Sophia Antipolis). Its research fields are Algorithmics, Discrete Mathematics, Combinatorial Optimization and Simulation, with applications to telecommunication networks.

The objectives of the Mascotte project-team are to design networks or communication algorithms. In order to meet these objectives, the team studies various theoretical tools, such as Discrete Mathematics, Graph Theory, or Algorithmics and develops applied techniques and tools, especially for Combinatorial optimization and Computer simulation. In particular Mascotte used in the last year both these theoretical and applied tools for the design of various networks, such as WDM, wireless (radio), satellites, overlay, and peer-to-peer networks. This research has been done within various industrial and international collaborations.

This results also in the production of advanced softwares such as the Mascopt library (Mascotte optimization), and ambitious software projects such as the OSA computer Simulation Architecture.
