The Georgia Tech Algorithm and Randomness Center (ARC) identifies problems with natural connections to algorithms and randomness. To help solve these problems and understand related phenomena, ARC suggests provable algorithms and algorithmic explanations. ARC formulates general tools based on the solutions and the insights behind them and thereby extends and solidifies the theory of algorithms. Additionally, ARC represents an algorithms and randomness think tank that scientists across campus can use as a resource.
